Ms. Lorena Barkwell and Mr. Greg Szitowski – strangers to each other – were at a local pub last May, when a man suddenly lunged at an elderly male sitting at a VLT machine and dragged him to the floor. A struggle ensued over the man’s wallet. Unable to obtain the elderly man’s property, the suspect fled. Ms. Barkwell and Mr. Szitowski and two other bar patrons chased the suspect out of the building, but only Ms. Barkwell and Mr. Szitowski maintained pursuit as the suspect ran into traffic. While Ms. Barkwell called police and kept them updated on the suspect’s whereabouts, Mr. Szitowski caught up with the man and held him until police arrived. Without regard for their own safety, both played a critical role in bringing a robbery suspect to justice.
