    Moving Co. Workers Thwart Armed Robbery

    This is just plain old funny, and if you know the area, it makes it even funnier;


    A robbery of a moving company office in East Price Hill was broken up when workers tackled the suspect to the floor and wrestled his gun away from him.

    The incident happened around 9 a.m. Wednesday in the 400 block of Elberon Avenue near Bassett. The location is the offices of the J&B Moving Company and the Cincinnati Recycling Company.

    Raymond Palma, the owner of the moving company, says he and more than a dozen workers were getting ready to go out on their jobs when a man entered the offices. He showed them a gun and demanded everyone empty their pockets and hand over their money.

    The suspect, identified by police as Amhad Parker, was allegedly trying to walk Palma to the front door when the other employees tackled him to the floor.

    Palma and his workers say they could sense the robber was scared and decided to turn on him.

    Palma suffered scratches on his nose in the fight for the gun. "The next thing you know, he turned his head a little bit. We got him straight down on the ground. Two shots were fired and we got the gun away from him, and that's when everybody got on top of him," he said.

    Parker may have shot himself twice during the scuffle. Palma describes seeing what he thinks were a broken wrist and at least one gun shot wound to Parker's arm.

    Palma says he and his workers were able to hold the man down until police arrived. Parker was taken to University Hospital for treatment, and went into surgery at 1:00 p.m. to have a bullet removed from his arm.

    Twenty-one-year-old Parker will be arrested later Wednesday afternoon, and charged with aggravated robbery.

    Police are continuing to investigate.

    Officers say they're happy this robbery attempt turned out this way, but emphasize that residents should never try to fight off an armed attacker because the risk of getting shot is simply too great.

    "I'm gonna rob a bunch of guys who lift really heavy things for a living"- probably not the brightest idea.

    In East Price Hill, I'm surprised the workers weren't packing, what a moron.

    Are they talking about the GGs or BGs getting shot. I prefer BGs getting shot...with their own gun...with their finger on the trigger=priceless
