SANDUSKY, Ohio — Marc Alvarez said he wasn’t about to put up with it when a gunman showed up after 11 p.m. Saturday night at Convenience Food Mart, 1917 E. Perkins Ave., and demanded money.

“That kind of stuff can’t happen,” said Alvarez, 34, a Sandusky resident who’s a cashier at the store.

So instead of cooperating with the gunman, Alvarez attacked him, disarmed him and drove him out of the store.

Alvarez said Sunday night that during the incident, he was worried about protecting his female co-worker.

“My main priority at the time was to keep my co-worker who was with me safe and out of the way” Alvarez said.
