Convenience store owner stops robbery!

One Massachusetts convenience store owner had an unnerving incident in his store earlier this week.  Azhar Ali owns his own business and works hard daily to make it a success.  During store hours the other day in walks an armed assailant looking to rob Mr. Ali.  Mr. Ali however was not going to let this criminal come in and take his hard earned money without a fight.  As you can see in the store’s survelliance video the store owner was willing to protect his business.  Criminals think people are just going to let them come in and take whatever they want.  What they fail to realize is people work too hard for what they have and are willing to stand up.  Thankfully, this knife carrying robber is behind bars!
