“If you want an iphone, buy one.”
Illinois National Guardsman Spc. Paville N. Simpson, who apprehended three robbers at a subway station after the suspects snatched someone else’s iPhone. The serviceman, who was waiting for a train at the station, works as a security guard for World Security and was on his way to his job when the robbery victim flagged him down on the platform. When the serviceman chased the suspects up the stairs, one of them pulled out a replica gun. This prompted the security guard to draw his gun, and the suspects then surrendered. Spc. Simpson is a military police officer with Headquarters and Headquarters Company of the 404th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade in Chicago.
