People go to Internet cafes to surf the internet, chat, YouTube, play video games, and more often than not it’s a safe place to carry about any tasks requiring an Internet connection.  However, two armed gunmen recently attempted to a rob busy Palms Internet Café—not realizing that they were not the only one in the building with a firearm.

People go to Internet cafes to surf the internet, chat, YouTube, play video games, and more often than not it’s a safe place to carry about any tasks requiring an Internet connection.  However, two armed gunmen recently attempted to rob a busy Palms Internet Café—not realizing that they were not the only one in the building with a firearm.

The café’s surveillance cameras recorded the two thieves scrambling for their lives as a patron unleashed his own gun.  Despite being armed, the thieves decided to hightail without returning fire. 

The two masked men stumbled and tripped over themselves as they made their way out the door.  Luckily, it appears (from the YouTube video) that no one was seriously injured from the robbery attempt—maybe a scrape or two on the robbers during the getaway.

Supposedly, this was not the first robbery attempt that the Palms Internet Café had.  About a year ago, three armed men entered the café and robbed patrons of some cash, and unlike the recent event, there were no armed patrons to shoo away the uninvited guests.
