Deli manager takes gun from would-be robbers
Police are seeking two men in connection with the botched robbery of a Crown Heights deli earlier this week.
The men allegedly tried to hold up the Schenectady Avenue deli Tuesday afternoon.
The suspects weren't prepared when store manager Tali Parra grabbed one of their guns. 
Police are asking for the public's help identifying the suspects, who were recorded on the store's surveillance cameras.
After the store manager snatched the weapon, the two men fled in a Nissan Maxima, according to police.
Parra says he's prepared if someone else tries to rob the store again. He keeps a sword behind the counter.
"I'm not scared," he says. "It's my neighborhood. I have 15 years here. I'm going to be OK."
