Mr. Newman and the other gentleman ran after the subject and tackled him to the ground. After a brief struggle they were able to take the purse away from the subject who then ran off again. A Flint Police Special Operations Officer responding to the 911 call observed the subject as he was running from the scene and arrested him. The good Samaritans returned the purse to the woman who was not injured. The male subject was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries then lodged in jail.

The Flint Police Department would like to recognize the quick, heroic actions taken by Richard Newman and the other gentleman whose good deeds assisted in the apprehension of this subject and the return of the woman's belongings.
