Hero Tackles Mugger

This is the incredible moment a have-a-go hero RUGBY TACKLED a mugger to the ground in the middle of a car park – after he saw him swipe a pensioner’s handbag. Violent thug Benjamin Brown attacked the 82-year-old woman and snatched her handbag minutes after she collected her pension from a post office in Leicester last July. But he hadn’t planned on good samaritan Sam Woodward spotting the crime – and leaping on the thief as he tried to get away.
