A man wanted for pistol-whipping a worker during a robbery at a Philadelphia Little Caesars is in custody thanks to an off-duty police sergeant.

The sergeant called for backup and followed the armed man in his private vehicle. Responding officers were able to make the arrest. The suspect faces multiple charges. The 37-year-old woman injured during the robbery is hospitalized in stable condition.
