Watch as a man attempts to rob a store in Houston, but gets locked into the store by workers.

The workers and customers in a cell phone store were able to escape the robbery, but as for the man himself---not so.

The alleged robber was locked in the store after the workers escaped and once he noticed that there was no way out, he started to pray for his release. Of course, this was all caught on camera (months ago).

Well, his prayers weren't answered after several failed attempts to escape because police were quick to respond.

I'm just glad that no one was injured here and that the man responsible for this mess was apprehended by police.

As for the robber, he did plead guilty and was sentenced to five years in prison.
