A plan by two men to rob the Po'Kin convenience store in
Live Oak, Fla., at knifepoint was foiled by an 11-year-old girl, her
armed father, the store's owner and other customers in an incredible
display of community crimefighting. When the girl realized she had
startled the nefarious pair, she ran for her father outside with one
of the men on her heels. As that man fled in a vehicle, another
customer gave chase. Meanwhile, the owner was struggling inside with
the second man who, according to a Suwannee County Sheriff's
officer, was stuffing bills into his pocket. The girl's father, now
armed, entered the store where he and another customer subdued the
man and held him for authorities. The first man was captured soon
afterward at a nearby bar.
