‘Talk About Freaky Fast’ Jimmy John’s Worker Stops Alleged Purse Snatcher

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A suspect accused of snatching a woman’s purse in downtown Grand Rapids on Tuesday was stopped in her tracks when a Jimmy John’s worker showed “freaky fast” reaction time.

It all happened in the middle of the afternoon in the city’s busy Monroe Center.  Keean Mansour was making a delivery when he said he noticed something out of the ordinary.

“I was stopped at the intersection when I see this girl roll up on a bike right here in front of the Mediterranean restaurant,” Mansour said. “She just reaches over, grabs the lady’s purse and tries to roll off on her bike.”

But, Mansour was also on a bike.

“I hear, ‘Stop her!’ so [I] blast through the intersection,” Mansour said. “She thought she was quicker on a bike, but I was quicker.”

Mansour said he grabbed a hold of the woman and tried wrestling the purse away from her grip.

“I’m a pretty scrawny dude; like, two bigger guys came and helped me out and took her down,” Mansour said.

Once they had the woman on the ground Mansour said he went back to work.

The citizens held the suspect down until police arrived and took her into custody.

“He did a really good job,” Lydia Rodriguez, a witness said. “Talk about freaky fast…he was freaky fast.”

According to police, the woman faces a larceny charge and a charge of aggravated assault for allegedly biting one of the men who held her down.
