Tacoma police say the suspect entered a business at 4314 East Portland Ave. shortly after 10 p.m., armed with a .22 caliber rifle.
The proprietor approached the suspect and wrestled with him over the firearm, police say. The suspect let go of the weapon and fled on foot.
Police searched the area but were unable to find the man.
