This Armed Robber in a Portland Bar Didn’t Plan on This Happening [VIDEO]

According to police, an armed robber entered a bar in Portland, Oregon and demanded cash from the bartender at gunpoint. What he didn’t plan for was five burly customers beating him up and holding him until the police arrived.

Twenty-five-year-old Deshantin Najhee Motley came into the Southeast Portland bar on Sunday night around 10:40, went behind the counter and pointed a gun at the bartender. According to the Mt. Scott Pub owner Crystal Stockwell, Motley was so focused on getting money from the cash register that he didn’t bother to check his surroundings:

“I had five patrons here at the time that he was not paying attention to. All very tough men and they went outside and waited for him. They had both doors covered and they waited whichever way he was going and when he walked out the front door, they took him down.”

During the struggle to take him down, a shot was fired which nearly hit someone in the bar. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Except for the armed robber, of course, who ended up with at least a black eye.
