A young armed robber had the tables turned on him early Wednesday.

A 15-year-old Salt Lake boy walked into the 7-Eleven store at 490 N. Redwood Road about 2:45 a.m. The juvenile was wearing a blue bandana over his face and was carrying a sawed-off shotgun, Salt Lake police said.The boy pointed the gun at a large male clerk and demanded money. But instead of complying, the clerk grabbed the gun away from the robber and held him at gunpoint while he called police.

Officers arrived, arrested the boy and booked him into the juvenile detention center.
