AKRON -- A customer inside a Mr. Hero's became a literal hero by stopping a robbery.

Akron Police say a female suspect entered the restaurant in the 400 block of West Market Street shortly after 5 p.m. and attempted to rob its employees and customers.

The suspect allegedly held her hand under her shirt as if she had a gun and yelled, "This is a robbery, give me all of your money!" She reportedly pushed one of the customers as she approached the counter. That's when another customer tackled the female and held her until police arrived.

Officers arrested Crystal Tatum, 46, and booked her into the Summit County Jail on a robbery charge.
