New York Assemblyman tackles man suspected of robbing mother with baby in stroller and holds him on ground until police arrive
An Assemblyman from Queens, New York found himself in the role of a real life superhero when he tackled a would-be mugger in his district on Thursday.
Kim was walking back from his office at 12:30pm when he says he saw a man running down Main Street, in hot pursuit by a Good Samaritan, and the victims of what appeared to be a crime: a woman with a child in a stroller, and an elderly lady.
Reportedly, the suspect, identified as 25-year-old Daniel Fish, had demanded money and then grabbed the 29-year-old mom's purse when she refused.
At this point, a Good Samaritan stepped in and wrestled the bag out of the man's hands, according to the New York Daily News.
The suspect then fled and the victim was reportedly running after him, despite being weighed down with a 9-month-old baby, when Kim caught sight of them.
All of them ran after the suspect, and were joined by some more bystanders along the way.
