WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - One car wash employee might be deserving of a raise after chasing off a robbery suspect Saturday afternoon.

It all started when an employee at Auto Tracks Car Wash off Shipyard Blvd noticed someone coming out the office through the back.

The employee approached the suspect and began questioning him. The suspect then ran away to his van with the employee following him.

The suspect then pulled a knife and threatened the employee and said he had a gun.

The suspect took off in his van but the employee was able to get the tag number.

The WPD is the process of obtaining warrants for the case.
