An armed robber came face to face with an unarmed brother-sister team at an Omaha PepperJax restaurant this morning. The good guys won.

Omaha police say 20-year old Sondra Newsom entered an open door at the store at 8406 Park Drive at 8:05am Thursday. When an employee was made aware of the open door, she went to check it out. However, Newsom was already inside and pointed the gun at the employee and handed her a bag.

Just as the employee was about to fill the bag with money, another employee who happens to be her brother, saw what was happening. Police say Newsom pointed the gun at the brother. When she pointed the gun away from him, the brother saw an opportunity and tackled Newsom.

Newsom was held until police arrived.
