ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — A 17-year-old is in jail accused of trying to rob a 7-Eleven in Round Rock early Wednesday morning.

According to an arrest affidavit, the gas station at 2681 Gattis School Road was robbed by two suspects just after 3 a.m. Round Rock police say one of the suspects, identified as Anthony Rheinholtz, jumped over the counter and grabbed several packs of cigarettes.

An employee was able to grab Rheinholtz and put him in a headlock, but he fought back and started punching the employee, police say. A customer jumped in and the two were able to finally pin Rheinholtz to the ground.

An employee at the store told KXAN when the second suspect could not exit the store, one of them shot the glass door so he could escape. The arrest affidavit indicates the suspect fired four shots at the glass. The second suspect has not been arrested at this time.
