KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- A manager at a Church's Chicken restaurant in Kansas City, Mo., foiled a robbery attempt by grabbing the gun held by one of the suspects, police said.

The attempted robbery happened about 6:20 p.m. Sunday, The Kansas City (Mo.) Star reported.

One of the three robbers pulled a gun and waved it in the manager's face, demanding cash, police said.

As the manager was seemingly complying with the request, the suspect reached over the counter waving the handgun. The manager then grabbed the revolver, police said.
