My car got broken into at about 1am this morning at the corner of 24 and E. Marshall. Someone smashed in my passenger side window. I had some running shoes stolen (have fun with those thief, they have a hole in the heel.)
While that sucks, I wanted to say thanks to the good Samaritan who observed it happening and loudly shouted, ‘THAT’S MY CAR *expletives/name calling*!!! GET AWAY!!!’ The thief ran away before he could get anything else.
The good Samaritan alerted my neighbors, who called RPD, who were a block away and were able to respond (and alert me) almost immediately. A big thanks to the police officers who responded.
The GS headed to Patrick Henry afterwards before I could thank him. I couldn’t go in and thank him (gaping maw of a window,) but I did send the door guy in with some money to buy GS a drink in thanks.
Hopefully he got it. But it bears repeating, THANK YOU so much. This could have been a lot worse.
