In Texas, the land where people are allowed to carry guns around in their cars without permits, two armed Good Samaritans came to the aid of man who had been robbed.
A Houston man was robbed at gunpoint as he made his way to his car on Thursday. The robber, who presumably thought he’d get away with the man’s wallet and phone, ended the night with a few bullet wounds and bite marks from a German Shepherd, thanks to a pair of armed do-gooders.
Police report that the armed robber attacked Kevin Dorsey as he was leaving a local bar. Dorsey reports that he hadn’t even closed his car door when a man in a ski mask, dressed in black, put a gun to his chest and demanded his wallet, cell phone, and car keys.
After being robbed, Dorsey took off on foot, and was soon approached by two men in Mercedes who had allegedly passed by when the crime was taking place.
“As soon as they pass me, they see the guy has a gun to me,” Dorsey told KPRC News.“They stopped right there. The guys in the gray Mercedes asked me, ‘Did you just get jacked?’ I said yes.”
The two men allegedly went after the robber, ultimately exchanging gunfire with the suspect. The robber was wounded and — as luck would have it — jumped over a fence only to be met by a German Shepherd, who had some choice bites for the suspect. The dog prevented the man from escaping until police arrived.
“I don’t own a gun. I’m totally at the mercy of my saviors. They obviously sent two angels to help me. These people protected me when I couldn’t protect myself,” noted the victim.
The robbery suspect was later identified by police as Christopher Hutchins, was being treated at Ben Taub Hospital for a gunshot to his abdomen. He is expected to make a full recovery.
