EL PASO - El Paso police said that a man who tried to rob several people at a bar got stabbed, instead.

This happened last night at the AMF bar on Montana in East El Paso.

According to police, a 20-year-old Hispanic man pulled out a gun and demanded wallets and cell phones from six customers who were in the bar's patio. Then, the customers attacked the gunman and one of them stabbed him with a pocketknife.

Police later discovered that the robber was using a BB gun that resembles a semi-automatic weapon.

We're told the person who stabbed the robber will not be arrested; police said the person was acting out of self-defense.

Besides the suspect, who is expected to be ok, no one else was injured. His mug shot will be released once he's booked into jail.
