An elderly man got the reputation of a hero after he managed to detain a criminal who was fleeing from the scene.
As is known, the suspects entered the Spaza shop and one of them pulled a gun out and pointed it at a store manager.
“They then demanded the gate keys. They unlocked the gate and entered on the other side of the counter. Cigarettes, cash, and a cellphone were taken,” Colonel Priscilla Naidu said.
The same old man became a witness of the robbery and then without a second thought started to chase fleeing robbers.
He caught a 16-year-old felon up, tackled him to the ground and waited to let the police take care of him.
The police arrested the teenager upon arrival and charged him with robbery.
