Houston police say an armed robbery suspect quickly had a change of heart when he realized his alleged victim also had a gun.
Surveillance video shows the guy pulling up his shirt and walking toward the desk of the car dealership employee before he stops in his tracks. He grinned, backed away and ran out the door and down the street.
The employee said the two suspects drove into the lot in a black Mercedes with temporary plates. One of them got out and asked to test drive a car. The suspect then followed him into the office where he pulled out his gun, according to police.
The employee told investigators when he grabbed his own gun, the suspect said, “No” and hightailed it out of there.
