A masked robber who raided a convenience store in Birmingham met his match when he was tackled by two female staff members.
Tyrone Dorsett, 34, carried out a number of knifepoint robberies in the Birmingham area.
However, during this particular raid he was tackled by two workers, one of whom fought him off with a pole.
Dorsett did manage to make off with the till, but West Midlands Police later caught him after finding DNA on a discarded beer can he had been swigging before the robbery.
He went on to admit a total of 15 robberies and one count of assault with intent to rob at Birmingham Crown Court and has been jailed for 12 years.
