Detroit Cook Fends Off Armed Robber

posted on June 23, 2015

On Sunday morning, a man walked into Pete’s Grill and Coney Island restaurant on Detroit’s East Side, announced a robbery and pointed a gun at the establishment’s owner. A quick-thinking cook at the restaurant then shot the attempted robber, killing him and possibly saving the lives of several customers. 

At this writing, no charges have been filed against the restaurant employee. “When you are being threatened with a weapon and you face a split-second decision, you make your decision based on the information that you have in front of you at that moment,” said Sgt. Cassandra Lewis of the Detroit Police Department.

“It was a good thing, because the guy was threatening everybody, and there had to be at least 20 people in the restaurant,” witness Robert Felton told Local 4 News. “So the guy that works here was a hero, really a hero.”
