A civilian helped stop an armed suspect Thursday, who was fleeing from police officers in New York City.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office Southern District of New York, the suspect, Jason Fleming, was arrested on March 16 after he brandished loaded firearms in broad daylight after a dispute in a bodega in Chelsea.

The suspect was arrested after a civilian, who saw him fleeing police officers with a revolver in his hand, stepped in his way and pushed him into a nearby fence. The civilian then held onto the suspect until NYPD officers were able to place him under arrest, video shows.

“ s alleged, the defendant illegally brandished two loaded firearms in broad daylight on a Manhattan street, one of which was a carbine rifle, frightening numerous New Yorkers, including a child,” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said.

“Thanks to our law enforcement partners and the heroic efforts of a Good Samaritan, the defendant was apprehended before he could hurt anyone, and his weapons are now off the streets.”

  1. A good man, gee I wonder why it’s almost always a man stepping up and not a woman ? Women always talk a good game and never ever step up . Implement the woman’s ERA that was ratified by the required number of states over two years ago , ha sure they will

  2. KUDOS to Good Samaritans everywhere in our great country who are now stepping forward to help our law enforcement officers take down these thug criminals!! People are starting to realize that cops are not the real bad guys. Good job!!!

  3. Good, I would have loved to see him body slam the bastard with a face plant on the pavement. Good for the Good Samaritan who was in the right place at the right time. He was not fearful. Glad he is not injured in any way. He seemed to be walking away OK. Good job sir, and thank you for your service to the public safety.
