Store Owner Stops Armed Robbery

posted on December 26, 2015

A robbery suspect who had robbed a Cincinnati convenience store two weeks ago made a near-fatal mistake by targeting the same store again.

Mohammad Abdelwahed, owner of G&J Market, was working in the store just before 8 p.m. on Sunday when 30-year-old Ronald Collins came in, pointed a gun and demanded money from the register—just like two weeks earlier. But when he turned to leave this time, Abdelwahed pulled his gun and shot him. 

“You never turn your back on someone when you’re robbing them,” Abdelwahed said. Cincinnati police told local media that Collins sustained life-threatening injuries but is expected to survive.
