DENVER -- A business owner battled back against someone who tried to steal a video game system from his store. And the fight was recorded on the store's surveillance camera system.

The thief tried to get away with one of the holiday's hottest items at Level 7 Games. But Elijah Taylor wouldn't have any part of it. He chased him down in the store and went into battle.

He kept the thief from taking what would amount to $300 out of the small business owner's pocket. "I'm not Walmart," Taylor said. He couldn't afford to lose a single $300 XBox game system like that.

"I managed to get him a choke hold and restrain him and at that point he put his hands up and we waited for for police to arrive."

Police couldn't believe it and neither could Taylor. "In my case I was lucky he didn't have a gun."
