A female Subway sandwich worker has been suspended after recent footage emerged showing her fighting against an armed robber.
According to local media outlets, the female employee from Subway bravely fought against a one-armed robber who tried to come and attack duty. But if you think she was rewarded for her bravery and heroism, then you are sorely mistaken.
Instead, it now appears that she was punished for standing up for herself alone because the place where she works has recently suspended her, despite knowing the truth and seeing the viral video footage.
In the appalling video, viewers get a glimpse of the woman who decides to teach the armed robber a lesson that he won’t be forgetting, anytime soon. And that’s when she brutally bashes him using his own weapon/gun.
But now that she’s suspended, the news isn’t going down too well with citizens who are calling her workplace out for their injustice.
The hero employee was identified as Araceli Sotelo who can be seen on the footage dated September 5th. This is where she screams out for help and then begs the armed and hooded robber to quit hitting her. The whole time, the employee is seen standing alone at the Subway branch which is reportedly located in Rockford.
The woman was later seen appearing for a live interview where she spoke about how the man just showed her the weapon and that was enough for her to understand that things were not going to go down too well because she began freaking out.
Putting up a brave face without the armed robber knowing, she decided to fight back in a matter that some claim is an act of sheer heroism.
In the end, she managed to push him back and make him enter into a standing headlock position. If that’s not what you call absolute bravery, then we’re not quite sure what is. Do you agree?
