He knocked the gun out of the robber's hands in an incident captured on video.

The suspect has been identified as Loubens Jean-Pierre.

Police said when Jean-Pierre ran from the store, he robbed another clerk at a nearby hotel, pretending to have a gun.

Officers spotted him leaving the hotel.

Police later found Jean-Pierre hiding and arrested him for the armed robberies.

He is being held in jail without bail and is set to appear in court next week for a possible preliminary hearing.
