Restaurant Staff Turns Tables on Would-Be Robber in NW Columbus story image
COLUMBUS (Lisa Rantala/Sean Rowe) -- Police are investigating a suspected female gunman who was wrestled down this weekend by her victims in ten different business robberies.

The cashier at General Tsos Restaurant on Godown Road called 911 Sunday night saying a woman had just put a gun to her head and demanded cash.

Crystal Tang said she screamed for help in Chinese when her mother in the back of the store ran up and pulled the suspect's hair.

Other employees joined in and even seized the gun before fighting the suspected robber to the floor.

Police showed up, arrested Courtney Collmar, 27, and discovered her gun used was actually a BB gun.

Police are showing Collmar's mug shot to nearly a dozen other victims in past robberies, saying they anticipate more charges when the case goes before the grand jury in August. Restaurant Staff Turns Tables on Would-Be Robber in NW Columbus
