A rabbi held captive at a Texas synagogue escaped with other hostages after he nailed the terrorist gunman with a chair, according to his account of the incident.

Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker and three others were held at gunpoint for hours on Saturday at Congregation Beth Israel by Malik Faisal Akram, a 44-year-old foreign national. At around 9:15 p.m., with the synagogue surrounded by heavily armed police and FBI agents, Cytron-Walker saw an opportunity to make an escape.

In the last hour of the standoff, the gunman "wasn't getting what he wanted. It didn't look good, it didn't sound good," Cytron-Walker told CBS News. When the rabbi saw Akram "wasn't in a good position," he told his fellow hostages to rush for the exit.

"I told them to go, I threw a chair at the gunman, and I headed for the door," Cytron-Walker said. "And all three of us were able to get out without even a shot being fired."

The gunman posed as a homeless man to enter the synagogue, where he was served tea by Cytron-Walker before he turned his gun on his host. Akram demanded the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a terrorist imprisoned in Texas, in exchange for letting the hostages go. He released one of the four hostages 6 hours into the 10-hour standoff.
