SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- A group of bystanders helped stop an attempted robbery early Monday morning in Sioux City.

Police say, around 1:30 a.m., a man with a bandana over his face entered the Kum & Go at 14th and Pierce.

Witnesses say, he pointed a black object at the clerk, and ordered everyone to the floor, before grabbing several cases of beer and leaving. That's when the bystanders tackled him, holding him until officers arrived.

Police arrested Vincent Adkins of Omaha, charging him with second degree robbery, and assault while participating in a felony.
