Sunset Valley Police Chief helps NYPD arrest suspect on Fifth Avenue… while on vacation

It appears that there’s just no rest for Sunset Valley Police Chief Sean Ford, after he helped the New York Police Department nab a robbery suspect while he was on vacation in the Big Apple this week.

Ford told NBC News he was walking down Fifth Avenue while on vacation headed to Central Park when he saw two men in a scuffle. A store employee had chased a suspect out of an Abercrombie & Fitch store after he walked out with a fragrance bottle. Ford said he had already dialed 9-1-1 for help but decided to jump in when he saw the suspect swinging punches at the store employee and the situation began getting more violent.

Ford broke up the fight and held the suspect down until local police arrived.

“I got the guy, told him I was a police officer and took him to the wall, held him there until NYPD could get there,” Ford said.

The New York Police Department later tweeted out a picture of Ford, thanking him for his help in nabbing the suspect.

“I probably would not have wanted to do it this way,” Ford told NBC News, “but I’m glad I was there and then I got to meet some of the great guys from New York.”
