A string of early-morning robberies in Miami were ended by an armed baker. According to Miami Police, at least seven people were robbed by a group of men who asked the victims, "What time is it?" before pulling a gun. One of the victims, a bakery owner, complied by handing over his wallet, when he realized he was being robbed. When the robbers pushed forward, however, and demanded his keys, the baker wouldn't give them up. Instead, the audacious pastry maker pulled his own pistol and fired at the thieves, who still, unfortunately, managed a getaway. (local10.comMiami, Fla., 6/18/2019)
