    The plans of a robber went completely wrong after pulling out a toy gun on a store clerk, according to Dallas police.

    Around 4 a.m on Saturday, officers responded to a disturbance at the Race Trac on Northwest Highway.

    Police say the 22-year-old suspect, Anthony Bell, walked into the gas station and pulled out a gun on the clerk.

    The cashier employee working at that time realized that the gun was just a toy and began to beat up the suspect.

    Bell was arrested and transported to the hospital. Police say he is charged with robbery, a second degree felony.

    The clerk suffered minor injuries.
