EFFORT, Pa. (AP) - Workers at a doughnut shop in Pennsylvania’s Poconos Mountains tackled a knife-wielding robber as he left the store, helped by customers who held him until police arrived.

State police says Shane Juscavage, of Effort, walked into the Dunkin’ Donuts in Chestnuthill Township at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and threatened the staff with a steak knife.

Trooper Jeffrey J. Kowalski says Juscavage went behind the counter and took $429 from the drive-thru cash register.

After leaving the store, he was tackled in the parking lot by workers, assisted by customers.

Juscavage was arraigned Wednesday on charges including robbery and terroristic threats.

He was sent to Monroe County Prison under $250,000 bail.

Police say Juscavage robbed the same Dunkin’ Donuts of $300 on Nov. 14, using a silver revolver.
