“Dear PoP,

Do you know what happened on Irving and 14th Street, just in front of the Columbia Heights Metro around 7:00 pm last night? I didn’t see everything but I pieced it together from the other people standing there and was hoping you might have the full story. I guess a guy was trying to mug an older lady or something and when she didn’t give up her purse, he cold punched her in the face and started to walk away. The mugger took about two steps and then got drilled by some random dude who just laid him out like a linebacker – just form tackled the dude and put him on the ground. The mugger kept yelling and trying to get up, but the dude had the mugger pinned down with his face in the sidewalk, holding him until the cops got there. It was pretty awesome. Anyway, the cops came and took the mugger in. I didn’t stick around to see what else happened. Wondered if you have the rest of the story.”

Sounds like you got the whole story! Wild. I’m just glad they caught the would be mugger. Did anyone else witness this incident?
