A Dairy Queen employee interrupted a crime when a group of armed men tried to rob a customer.

The crime happened in Spring Hill around 10:40 p.m. Friday at the restaurant on Wall Street.

The victim said he was sitting at the drive-thru window when three guys rushed his car and pistol-whipped him. One of them then allegedly held a gun to his head while another suspect demanded money.

A worker interrupted and the would-be robbers ran off. The victim reportedly knew some of the suspects, and police said they believe the crime was targeted.

Police confirmed warrants were issued for the arrest of 21-year-old Marquiste Fears, 18-year-old Alvin Bahena-Carrillo, and 18-year-old Kirk Wolf.

Saturday afternoon, authorities said Bahena-Carrillo and Wolf had been taken into custody. Sunday evening, authorities confirmed Fears had turned himself in.
