Sarasota Man Takes Down Would-Be Robber
SARASOTA, Fla - On one hand, police are calling a man from Sarasota a "hero" for what he did. On the other hand, they are telling him not to do it again.
On Sunday afternoon this security camera video shows a man trying to rob a CVS store in Sarasota. Police say 65 year old Freddie Johnson demanded prescription pills. He implied to have a gun, but it was just his finger.
The clerk complies, but behind him is Jaanus Jurisoo, who simply takes down the would-be robber and keeps him in a choke hold for two minutes before police arrive.
Police say Johnson was also wanted for robbing a second pharmacy in February.
