A Good Samaritan with the help of his companion who was with him are being credited as heroes when they stepped in to prevent a potential robber from attacking an elderly couple who were withdrawing money from an automatic teller machine (ATM) at a Wells Fargo Bank in Pinewood Florida early in the morning.
It appears that the male would be robber was working with a female accomplice who was nearby driving a red Range Rover at the time of the attempted robbery when out of the blue came the Good Samaritan and his companion who most likely were either behind the auto where the elderly couple were making their withdrawal from the money machine when the two males were involved in a brief scuffle with the would be robber as they were able to take him down until the authorities arrived to take the suspect into custody.
It is not clear if the would be robber had any weapons on his hands like a knife or a pistol in his possession during the attempted robbery of the elderly couple at the time of the incident since it takes a lot of courage for any Good Samaritan to take on a robbery suspect who is armed with a weapon.
The female driver of the red Range Rover fled the scene of the attempted robbery. The local police are investigating is the female driver was working with the alleged robbery suspect or would she just a witness to the attempted robbery.
I am sure the elderly couple did thank the Good Samaritan and his companion for saving them heartbreak from having their life savings stolen from them.
