Surveillance video captured a store clerk in Northern California disarming a robbery suspect armed with an AK-47 assault rifle.

The incident occurred at the Circle T market in Riverbank on Wednesday, which is run by Talal Nasser and his father, Amin.

The video shows Amin walking up from behind the two suspects, heading to the counter where the armed man stands and grabbing the AK-47 from the suspect, tackling 20-year-old Leobardo Ramos of Ceres.

"He told me, 'Please, please let me go I already rob three stores before you and I'm going to jail for life.' I told him I didn't care, he scared me, he scared my kids, you know, " said Amin.
