VIDEO: Good Samaritans Take Down Suspected Mugger on NYC Street
A group of Good Samaritans heroically came to the rescue of a woman being mugged in New York City last week, and it was all caught on camera.
After a man snatched a woman’s backpack in broad daylight, several people tackled the alleged thief to the ground, demanded that he return the woman’s money and made sure the victim got her cash back.
The takedown was captured by New York resident Jackson Bryant, who posted the video to his website. The footage shows a man restraining the suspect in a headlock while other citizens attempt to hold his arms and legs.
The alleged mugger was eventually able to escape but was captured later by police and arrested on a slew of charges, including robbery and assault.
