Man Stops Thief From Stealing 87-Year-Old Woman's Purse At Grocery Store

Deshawn Pressley sprang into action when he saw a man attempting to steal an elderly woman’s purse inside a grocery store, chasing down and holding the suspect until deputies arrived.
Pressley tells WLWT Channel 5:

Hearing her voice screaming and her being scared, I just knew I had to do something.

And he ran right past me and I chased him down. He got to his car and everything, but I grabbed him, held him to the floor, got him down. Did what I had to do until the police arrived.

The suspect, Derek Vaughn, 58, of Middletown, has been charged with robbery and theft, both felonies, according to the sheriff’s office.
Pat Goins, tells WLWT she was shocked by what happened, but had kind words for Pressley.

You are truly a great person. I owe you more than I could ever thank you for and I want you to have a great life, a great year and love that baby girl.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office awarded Pressley with a Citizen's Award. He and Goins were reunited at the presentation.
