Evan Skinner explained, “When he pulled the gun out he just had it right to my forehead and said, ‘Hey give us all over your cash.’ And I was like we don’t have very much. And he just went like that quick and clocked me. And I was like okay, that’s fine.”
But it wasn’t fine for one of Evan’s friends who didn’t want the suspect to get away with it. The suspect started to leave with a mere $30, that’s when Evan’s friend tackled the 21-year-old suspect.
Skinner continued, “Frank had his right arm under control. James is laying on top of him. He had his forearms on the guy’s throat and I’m laying on his left arm and just punching him.” The suspect continued to fire his gun.
James Wolff said, “Above all I think we got really lucky. Police told us the gun jammed after the second shot.”
In this case, it was suspect Anthony Westby’s luck that ran out.
“He was bleeding out of his nose, his eyes, his mouth. They had to put him on a stretcher in a neck brace,” Skinner described.
Westby was taken to University Medical Center and is now at the Clark County Detention Center.
“It’s one of the things you do in Vegas — go to Strip, check out shows, go to Fremont, pummel an armed robber,” Wolff added.
