Deli employees fight back against robber

Some employees of a deli in Nassau County fought back against a would-be robber.



Police say Allen Sanders held up the Freeport Deli Express with a pellet gun on Saturday.



They say that when the cashier noticed the gun was fake, he went after the 22-year-old.



The store's owner, who recognized Sanders when a mask he was wearing came off, also joined in the fight.



Officers say Sanders left without any money and was arrested.
