    Denton pizza employee: Surprised to see dad when wig falls off robber

    10:51 AM CDT on Tuesday, July 15, 2008

    By DONNA FIELDER / Denton Record-Chronicle

    A Denton pizza worker said she was surprised when a fellow employee overpowered a would-be robber -- and even more surprised by who the bad guy turned out to be.

    As Stephanie Martinez was getting money out of a cash drawer, a co-worker, Rudy Sandoval, fought back against the intruder, knocking off his wig and sunglasses.

    "He was out on the floor for a good two to three minutes," Mr. Sandoval told NBC-TV's "Today" show this morning.

    Whe she saw the face behind the wig and dark glasses, "I dropped the money," Ms. Martinez said. "I said, 'Don't hit him again! That's my dad!' And he said, 'What's he doing here?' and I said, 'I don't know!' "

    Police say the suspect, Benjamin Ramirez, 41, ran out of the Pizza Patron in the 100 block of East University Drive to a pickup truck, where Ms. Martinez's mother and husband were waiting.

    Witnesses followed the pickup and helped lead police to it, where Mr. Ramirez, Sonia Palacios, 38, and Jose Miguel Martinez, 26, were arrested.

    All three have been charged with aggravated robbery. Mr. Ramirez and Ms. Palacios were being held on immigration violations. Mr. Martinez was free on $50,000 bail.

    The robbery took place Friday night.

    Mr. Sandoval, 17, said on the "Today" show that he'd been warned in his training not to fight back if there was ever a robbery attempt. "They always told me, give them the money," he said.

    But the burly teen said he instinctively reacted once the suspect slapped him.

    "He tested me, so I did it," he said.

    Denton police say they don't think Ms. Martinez knew her family was planning the robbery.

    "We ... will not be filing charges against her," Sgt. James Brett said. "Her husband told us she didn't know. He knew they were going to rob someplace, but he thought it was going to be a convenience store."

    Surveillance video shows the robber as he came into the restaurant about 10:25 p.m., pointing a silver gun that turned out to be a toy, according to a police report.

    Rule 1 for robbery: don't rob your daughter's place of work. :lolol

    Or it could have been one of thousands.... no wait... MILLIONS of real guns. Not every news story has to do with Transformers, you know.

    Anyways.... pretty horrible thing to do to your kid. She's scarred for life, probably.

    I like how all three of those idiots got arrested because they weren't smart enough to do what their daughter/wife was doing.

    I mean seriously, how dumb are these people? To not only plan this in advance, but to plan it for that specific store and NOT change the plans when he saw his own daughter working there?

    I feel bad for her though, that's for sure. Being related to so many idiots
