WACO -- A man trying to steal a car flees when the victim fights back. It happened at the Teco convenient store in Waco just before three Wednesday morning.
A Robinson teenager pulled up to get gas when 24-year-old Eugene French walked over to his car and opened the driver door when the teen was still in it.
The teen refused to get out of the car when French tried to get the keys out of the ignition.
That's when the victim fought back. French then punched the teen and said he had a gun, but the victim kept fighting until the robber gave up.
Police spotted French near New Rd. minutes later. He's now in McLennan County Jail.
