A group of customers helped stop a man who allegedly tried to steal cash from a register at King Soopers.

The incident happened around 1:15 p.m. at the store on Fillmore.

11 News anchor Dianne Derby was there, and says a cashier was in the middle of checking out a customer when a man pushed the cashier out of the way.

The cashier told Derby that the man grabbed cash and tried to run, but the cashier put his arms around the man and several customers jumped on top of him.

Police say the man, identified as Joseph Grimmig, was taken into custody. He's been booked into the county jail on a robbery charge. Records indicate he's still in custody as of Monday morning.

No one was hurt in the incident.
