BETHLEHEM, PENNSYLVANIA -- A man who tried to rob Figueroa's Market, 1227 Pembroke Road, Saturday was chased off when an employee confronted him with a gun.

After entering the market, Emmanuel Collazo DeLeon Jr., 21, of 420 W. Lehigh St., told owner Andres Rivera to give him money, according to police.

Rivera told DeLeon there was no money, and DeLeon punched Rivera in the face, police said. An employee grabbed a gun from under the counter, pointed it at DeLeon and told him to leave, police said.

DeLeon was apprehended a short distance away and charged with simple assault and attempted robbery.

He was taken to Northampton County Prison under $10,000 bail.
