Valdosta - A good samaritan helps catch a man who tried to rob a woman buying groceries.

The woman was loading a turkey in her car at Stan's Meats on North Oak Street in Valdosta Wednesday afternoon when two men pushed her to the ground and demanded money. She started screaming and they ran away.

A man driving by saw it and followed the men down the street. He led police to 21-year old Van Lewis, but the second suspect got away. "For the witnesses who were on the scene, the customers who came out to help the victim and certainly the individual that followed these two suspects, they were a big part of the reason we have one in custody and we've identified the second suspect," said Captain Brian Childress.

Police believe the second suspect is 23-year-old Prince Williams. If you have seen him or have any information on the case...call the Valdosta Police Tip Line at 229-293-3091.
