Jimmy John’s Delivery Person Tackles Downtown Mugger

flickr, me and the sysop

My boss was in the studio talking to me this afternoon and happened to notice, out of the corner of his eye, a scene involving an ambulance and at least three Grand Rapids Police cars. We wondered out loud what could possibly be happening and then I went back to doing my show thinking nothing of it. Turns out, quite the scene had transpired and it involved a “freaky fast” delivery person and an alleged mugger!

Police told the folks at FOX-17 that a woman snatched another woman’s purse while she ate outside of Parsley Mediterranean Grill at the corner of Ottawa and Monroe Center. The Jimmy John’s employee saw the incident occur and pursued the woman on his bike and then reportedly tackled her.

More onlookers helped contain the woman until police arrived on the scene.

The woman is being held on charges of larceny and aggravated assault.
