Ross and the clerk tangled with the robber for about a minute before finally pinning him to the ground.

Gas station customers said it's nice to know there are brave guys like Ross out there.

"When I saw this video I was like man this is something. It made me feel good to see there are people that actually help someone when they are in trouble," said Reginald Provost, a frequent customer.

The men held the robber down until police arrived and arrested him.
