Three gun-toting crooks jump Pizza Hut counter demanding money — and a lone employee takes them on

A Pizza Hut employee in Philadelphia took on a trio of gun-toting crooks who jumped the counter of a Philadelphia franchise on the night of Feb. 19 and demanded money. The crooks didn't fare very well. (Image source: YouTube screenshot)

But that's just what a Philadelphia Pizza Hut worker did on the night of Feb. 19 when just such a trio made their move and pointed their guns at employees in the store in the city's Germantown neighborhood, police said.

What did the employee do?

Surveillance video showed that after the suspects made their way over the counter one by one, an employee of the franchise emerged and took them on — swinging, pushing and grappling with the assailants.

At one point the clip showed the worker toppling a shelf full of pizza boxes at one apparently frightened perp who reacted by hopping back over the counter.

What was the final result?

Despite their superior numbers, not to mention firepower, the hapless crooks took off on foot, police said — and with nary a nickel in their pockets to show for their efforts. They didn't even grab breadsticks on their way out.

Police also said no shots were fired, and no injuries were reported.

But cops described the suspects as "armed and dangerous" and advised those who can identify them to simply contact authorities rather than approaching any of them.

Here's the video:
