Just outside of Philly Cocco's Pizza delivery driver Tyler Morrell was standing on a customer’s porch delivering a pizza when he heard police pulling over a car on the road in front of the house.
The customer’s doorbell camera catches the scene when two police cars pull up behind a car. Then someone jumps out of the car and starts running away from the officers. Morrell sees the incident unfolding and as the suspect runs past him, the delivery driver puts his leg out and trips the alleged thief, allowing the police to quickly capture him.
The two teenage suspects were confirmed to have been driving a stolen car and have been arrested on multiple charges. Brookhaven Borough Police Chief Mike Vice applauded Morell for helping them to catch the suspected thieves, but says they prefer the public to not intervene. For his part, Morrell says he didn't know he’d be doing anything but making deliveries that day. Tyler can be seen on the tape getting very nervous as the criminal jumps out of the car near him and cops trying to pin him in but he sprints down the sidewalk. At first Tyler is trying to move out of the way to safety but then changes his mind, steps back and kicks the guy in the shin causing him to face plant. He told CBS "I'm sick of all this crime that's going on so I was ready to step up".
He held on to the pizza and as soon as the guy was in custody went back up to the door and completed the delivery.
