UPDATE: Police identify robbery suspect apprehended by market employees

Jackson+Curry,+21.jpgMarket employees turned the tables on an armed robber who tied them up this morning in a neighborhood north of downtown.

Sacramento police were alerted to robbery in progress at 5:45 a.m. Wednesday. Officers responded to the T&Y Market in the 2800 block of Norwood Avenue where employees had a suspected robber, later identified as 21-year-old Jackson Curry (pictured), under their control.

Police learned that several employees were opening the market this morning when they were followed into the store by a man with a gun. At least some of the employees were tied up.

One worker was taken around the store at gunpoint, apparently being forced to lead the culprit to money. That worker then began fighting with the gunman. He was joined by another worker who escaped his bonds.

The two workers gained control of the gunman after a fight. A police spokeswoman said during the altercation the robber tried to shoot his weapon but it did not fire.

Nobody was injured.

Curry was arrested and booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, robbery, false impisonment and burglary.
