Security footage shows a navy veteran stop a thieving thug in his tracks after he assaults an elderly woman.
U.S. Navy veteran Kendrick Taylor was in the parking lot of a grocery store when he saw Zachary DesJardin, 23, knock a 76 year-old woman to the ground as he tried to steal her purse. Instead of staying on the sidelines, the veteran took action.
Taylor rushed for DesJardin and tackled him to the ground, even though he had no idea whether or not he was armed.
“When I looked down I didn’t know if he had a knife or a gun,” he later said. “When I saw the lady was so old when he threw her down, she was so fragile… I knew she needed help.”
“What if she was my grandmother?” the veteran asked himself.
Taylor managed to hold the young punk down until police arrived on the scene and arrested him. The elderly woman was very shaken up, but only suffered minor injuries from the incident.
