Good Samaritan Tackles Suspect Who Allegedly Assaulted, Robbed Elderly Man

-

- Advertisment -

A homeless man who assaulted and allegedly attempted to rob an elderly man at a Hollywood restaurant was chased down and subdued by a good Samaritan until authorities could arrive.

Security camera footage captured the incident and was shared on YouTube by Amherst Technologies on Friday. Since being shared on Twitter on Saturday, the video has received over 500,000 views as of Sunday evening.

Watch: **Language Warning**

In the footage from the restaurant, a man, described as homeless, can be seen walking up to the elderly man, who is off-camera, and proceeds to assault him while allegedly stealing his wallet and phone.

Sitting nearby, the good Samaritan, who can be heard narrating the events of the footage, witnessed the assault and immediately chased the suspect down.

The footage then cuts to a street view where the narrator tackles the man while a wallet — presumably the elderly man’s — falls from the suspect’s hands and onto the street.

The homeless man can be seen punching the good Samaritan in the face before he is tackled to the ground.

“That is where he clocked me,” the narrator said. “He ruined my glasses. They’re destroyed.”

A woman is then seen picking up the wallet and assisting the good Samaritan in subduing the suspect by stepping on his feet.

The narrator notes he slowly turned the suspect over to have him facing up.

From then on, the good Samaritan pinned the alleged robber down for a few minutes while he attempted to wrestle himself away to no avail.

Authorities eventually arrived, and the suspect was seen being arrested by police.

It is unknown when and where precisely in Hollywood the incident occurred or the details regarding the suspect’s detainment.

Breitbart News reached out to Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for more details but did not receive an immediate response.

On Wednesday, Los Angeles County county recently approved to give LAPD’s Hollywood division $216,000 in extra funds to combat rising crime in the neighborhood, Fox News reported.

Hollywood has experienced a 20 percent and 25 percent increase in robbery and theft, respectively, the outlet noted.
