A video captured the horrifying moment a masked gunman threatens the life of a taxi driver... and the swift justice served by nearby police.

California - Authorities say a man tried to rob a car wash in Northern California with an empty potato chip bag and an alleged handgun.

Rohnert Park's Department of Public Safety says in a statement that the man entered KaCees World of Water car wash Friday night and dropped an empty potato chip bag on the counter.

Piece of cardboard

He told the cashier to fill it with money, warning that he had a gun.

The man gestured that the weapon was in the empty bag, but the cashier saw it held only a piece of cardboard and called a co-worker for help.

Police say when the other employee approached, the suspect fled on foot.
