Man trying to escape with baby blocked by robbery

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania -- A customer trying to escape with a baby was blocked from leaving the scene of a restaurant robbery in Northeast Philadelphia.

Surveillance video released Tuesday shows how their crime played out around 9 p.m. Friday.

One of the men jumped behind the counter, demanding money at Texas Chicken and Burgers.

The video shows a customer trying to protect a baby in a car seat, but the second suspect - who was guarding the door - wouldn't let anyone leave.
