In July 2017, a man and a woman broke into the secure underground parkade of a southside seniors living facility.
The couple pried open a door to gain access to the basement storage lockers, but the noise alerted Mr. David Allen who was nearby.
Mr. Allen confronted the couple, but the man swung and threw a tire iron, but Mr. Allen managed to dodge it.
Rather than retreating to safety, Mr. Allen pursued the two suspects as they fled. He grabbed the man by his backpack, however he slipped away and escaped on a bicycle.
The woman also tried to escape on bicycle, but Mr. Allen was able to stop her. Despite her efforts to flee, he was able to hold her until police arrived.
This fearless citizen was nominated by Southwest Division Acting Sergeant Paul Olekszyk.
Congratulations David Allen.
