In the city of Paterson in the state of New Jersey, two robbers found themselves locked in the store they came to loot. This greatly amused passersby who saw the scene from the sidewalk. That happened Wednesday, August 17, 2016 in a Boost Mobile Store. The employee took advantage of a moment of inattention to flee to the back of the shop, taking care to lock the door behind him. A man in front of the shop then helped down the iron curtain, blocking the two robbers inside. The two robbers tried to force the curtain, unsuccessfully, giving a show to amused passersby. After 20 minutes, they finally managed to escape through a window. The police arrived only 10 minutes later. The two men were eventually arrested the next day.
