Armed Citizen Stops Three Robbers In Newport News

posted on December 8, 2015

A vigilant customer is credited with stopping a recent armed robbery in Newport News, Va. Just before 10 p.m., three men wearing masks, gloves and tennis shoes ran into a Family Dollar discount store. According to police, the smallest of the men had a handgun drawn as the three approached the register. They announced to the cashier that they were robbing the store, but before they could take any money, a customer in the checkout line, who had been watching the situation unfold, pulled out his concealed firearm. When the men saw the gun, they immediately fled on foot. 

Based on the clothing, shoes and physical builds of the suspects as captured on surveillance cameras, police believe they may have committed a string of other armed robberies in Newport News and the nearby city of Hampton before being foiled in this recent attempt.
