Man Takes Down Thief: A man in Georgia, US, is being praised for his quick thinking in pushing a grocery cart in the way of a shoplifting suspect on the run, uneasy his escape tender.
According to CNN, this incident (a man take down the thief with grocery cart) happened last month when Peachtree City Police responded to a call about two men trying to rob at a Home Depot outlet in the city.
When City Police approached the two in the parking lot, they attempted to escape the scene. That is when the Good Samaritan, who has not been identified pushed his grocery cart in front of one of the suspects, sending him trembling to the ground and allowing cops to catch up with him.
Footage of this incident released by the Peachtree City Police Department last week and they said we were thankful for the citizen’s quick thinking but asked people to avoid intervening in a police situation.
Fox News reports that police later identified the thief as Marcus Smith. The 41-year-old was charged with offense shoplifting and obstruction. Another suspect succeeded to escape in a vehicle.
