Workers at Uptown Car Spa sprang into action when they heard a woman yelling for help Friday afternoon on San Felipe at Sage in southwest Houston.
A woman was on the way to deposit money at Bank of America, when he knocked the victim to the ground and snatched her bag. Dozens of car wash employees ran to help the woman and chased down the robber, holding him until police arrived.
Elder Gutierrez, who led his coworkers to help the woman said: “I don't think we are heroes. If something like this ever happens again, we would try and do the same thing no matter what.”
