Justice: Navy Veteran Thwarts Purse Snatcher Attempting to Rob a 76-Year-Old Woman (VIDEO)

Our veterans are called the best and brightest among us for a reason, and Kendrick Taylor demonstrates just another reason why. When he saw a punk kid trying to rob an elderly woman, he immediately sprang into action.

23-year-old John Zachary DesJardin was attempting to do a ride-by robbing of a 76-year-old lady on his bicycle when a Navy vet heard the cries for help and came to the rescue.

Kendrick Taylor and two other men responded to the cries for help and chased the thief down before he could get away.

“What if that was my grandmother? She was screaming for help, and that’s when I went over to help her,” Taylor said. “When I looked down I didn’t know if he had a knife or a gun, but I just saw the lady — she was so old. and when he threw her down, she was so fragile and I knew she needed help.”

And help he did. In the security footage, Taylor is seen chasing down DesJardin, who was on probation for unrelated charges, from behind and putting him down hard.

It takes a pretty horrible person to physically attack an elderly woman who isn’t physically capable of fighting back. Thankfully, there are people like Mr. Taylor willing to step up and make sure these thugs don’t get away with it.
