LITTLE ROCK, AR - Police say the owner of Nick's Superstop on Chenal Parkway was able to get the gun away from a robber outside the gas station Monday morning.

According to police, Nadeem Siddique was getting in his vehicle when a man wearing a ski mask pulled the door open, pointed a semiautomatic pistol at him and said, "I'll kill you."

Siddique grabbed the gun and twisted it from the suspect's hand then fought with the suspect, according to the incident report, but the suspect was able to grab a deposit bag from Siddique's vehicle and fled in a white, four-door compact car.

Police say the suspect's gun was not loaded.

The suspect is described as being 5'6" and weighing approximately 135 pounds.
