A bagel cart prevented two armed suspects from robbing an Einstein Bros. Bagels in College Park this morning.

Orlando police reports show two suspects in hooded sweatshirts, masks and armed with a shotgun walked into the eatery at 2817 Edgewater Drive around 5:37 a.m.

Sgt. Barbara Jones of the Orlando Police Department said the men tried to rob the restaurant, but one of the employees pushed a bagel cart at the suspects and they fled.

Jones said one customer was inside the restaurant at the time of the attempted robbery. There were no injuries.
