The market's owner said Cullen came in, displayed a threatening note, and verbally told her, "Give me your money, or you're going to die."
The owner said one of her neighbors walked in and she told him she was being robbed.
He sprung into action, forcing Cullen to the ground, as the store owner called police.
Witnesses said Cullen tried to get away but another man delivering food to the market picked up a large squash and used the fruit to hit Cullen over the head.
