According to German-language newspaper Bild, the robber entered the store, produced a knife and demanded money from the gas station attendant. In an act of self-defense, the employee, identified only as 20-year-old Robert B., remotely locked all exits and signaled the alarm. He then grabbed a baseball bat from another room and used it to fend off the intruder.
As the two are seen scuffling in the video, the robber appears to slump into Robert's arms and begins to cry.
