Video Shows Employees, Patrons Chasing Would-Be Robber Out of Miami Restaurant

A robber who stormed into a Miami restaurant was quickly chased out of the business, newly released surveillance video shows.

A man who claimed to have a gun rushed into the Antigua Guatemala Restaurant on West Flagler Street around 11 p.m. on May 12. The suspect threatened employees, demanding cash, police said.

The robber then approached an employee behind the cash register and pushed the register to the floor when the cashier did not comply. That's when the employee took a chance to fight back and punched the robber. The employees and patrons then chased the man out of the restaurant.

He darted down the street and jumped into a getaway car. The man got away empty-handed.

Both the robber and the getaway driver remain on the run. Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
