WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - A member of the local Guardian Angels thwarted a robbery on Father's Day, according to MPD.
On Sunday, June 17, a 69 year old man left the McDonald's at 414 Rhode Island Avenue, NE when another man, age 62, rushed up to him as the victim was getting into his car.
The suspect robbed the victim of money and was trying to get away.
Guardian Angel Dion King, who was having a Father's Day lunch at the restaurant, saw what was going on. King immediately rushed out to intervene, stopping and detaining the robber, who was turned over to Fifth District officers as they arrived at the scene.
MPD's Andy Solberg, 5D commander, said in a statement, "We want to thank Dion King, and all the Guardian Angels who regularly and routinely help patrol the streets and alleys and bike paths of 5D as they assist the 5D community in efforts to create safer neighborhoods."
