If I ever witnessed someone attacking my grandmother, I can guarantee you all hell would break loose. People steal from all sorts of people, but to steal and attack an elderly woman is just shocking. But that’s exactly what happened here. But something else happens that you wouldn’t expect. Something AH-MAZING.
About two years ago, a 76-year-old woman was walking to her car in a Winn-Dixie parking lot when a purse snatcher jumped in her way and attacked her! Thankfully, three people came to her aid…one of whom was a navy veteran who you definitely didn’t want to mess with!
Kendrick Taylor is that big guy you’re always nervous standing next to. When he heard that terrifying scream of a woman he glanced over just in time to see the older woman being assaulted by a coward and thief. As Taylor approached, the criminal quickly jumped on his bike and took off.
Taylor ignored any dangers and pursued the criminal with full speed. The Navy veteran ran faster than the bike, caught up with him, and tackled the criminal off the bike and into the ground. Once there, Taylor held the man down and called the police.
The criminal was already on probation when he attempted to steal this woman’s purse. With this new offense, he was charged with robbery and attempted battery on the elderly. Like most veterans, Taylor says he doesn’t consider himself a hero. “What if that was my Grandma?” Taylor said. Yeah…that doesn’t sound like a hero at all…
