Not all superhero's wear capes. A Florida Chick-fil-A employee is being hailed as a hero after deputies said he stopped a carjacking outside the fast food restaurant.

According to Wesh, the young employee was rushed outside the restaurant to help a screaming woman holding a baby after a man grabbed her keys and tried to take her car.

Investigators said the woman was getting the baby out out of her car when a man identified as William Branch walked up to her wielding a stick and demanded her keys. Branch then grabbed the car keys from the waistband of the woman's pants, opened her car door and got inside the car. When the woman began screaming for help, the Chick-fil-A employee ran out to intervene.

Branch punched the employee in the face but the employee was not seriously injured. The video shows the entire encounter.

Deputies said Branch was charged with carjacking with a weapon and battery.
