Immediately after McInnis and McCoy fled, the clerk notified the off-duty officers to the armed robbery. The robbers had not gone far, investigators said, when several officers ran out and took them into custody.

A police incident report says an officer hit McCoy with a closed fist because police couldn’t control his arms after tackling him.

None of the employees, patrons, or officers were injured, police reported. The two men have been charged with armed robbery and possession of a handgun, and are currently being held without bail.
