Armed Good Samaritan comes to aid of purse-snatching victim

HOUSTON - by Rucks Russell/KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

 

A mother out with her two children to go shopping became the victim of would-be purse snatchers, but a good Samaritan armed with a gun came to the rescue.

 

"It happened so fast," said Brenda Vasquez, who manages the Family Dollar store in the 3400 block of Orlando Avenue in northeast Houston.

 

She witnessed the assault.

 

"This lady opens her car door, grabs the woman's purse and they reverse. While they're trying to reverse, the lady is holding on to her purse still, chasing them all the way to the middle."

 

That's when a perfect stranger intervened. He happened to be in his car in the parking lot when it happened.

 

"And that good Samaritan came out, drew his weapon and scared them. And that's when he pulled them out of the car."

 

Someone snapped a picture of the man holding the two suspects at bay. A few minutes later, police arrived and took the male and female suspects into custody.

 

The man who first confronted them purchased some candy for his kids and drove away.

 

"The guy is something else," said Vasquez. "He's a hero."

 

Police were not releasing the names of either the good Samaritan or the victim.

 

No one was injured.
