PHOENIX -- Phoenix police said a quick-thinking employee helped them arrest an armed robber Thursday afternoon.

The incident happened at a vehicle restoration business near 23rd Avenue and Phelps.

Fortunately, an employee saw the suspect walk into the business wearing a mask and called 9-1-1.

Police arrived before the suspect was able to get away and placed him under arrest.

The owner of the business was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
