” A Fort Myers armed robbery suspect was taken to the hospital on Thursday after his victims fought back.

  Police learned two people were at the Penny Saver Supermarket on Ortiz Avenue cashing a check when Mangual-Ayala asked for a ride home.

  While they were driving, Mangual-Ayala took out a gun, put it to the driver’s head and demanded money – threatening to kill the victims.

  The driver then threw his money at Mangual-Ayala as the passenger went into action. 

” The passenger decided to jump in the back seat and disarm the robber,” said Lt. Victor Medico with the Fort Myers Police Department.”
