NYC Good Samaritans Tackle Mugger


Via Gothamist:

A mugger was arrested after being tackled and held by random New Yorkers in Midtown Manhattan on Wednesday.


Police say the incident happened yesterday afternoon when 37-year-old Theodore Shearin grabbed the backpack belonging to an unnamed woman on 35th Street and 8th Avenue. Shearin then dragged the woman across the street as she tried to keep him from stealing her bag. At that point, a group of passersby grabbed him and held him down.


You can hear the good Samaritans, who are holding Shearin in a headlock, ask the victim, “Do you want to press charges?” to which she heartily responds, “Yes, he’s an asshole!” More
