A mobile phone business owner in Dayton, Ohio took matters into his own hands this past Sunday on Nov. 19. WHIO Channel 7 published a story about the incident on their site.
The business owner, Adam Seaton, said that he received an alert on his phone from his store’s security system. Seaton traveled to his store and saw two suspects attempting to break through the security gate in front of his store.
Surveillance video showed one of the suspects attempting to break through a secured window with a brick. The video shows the other suspect standing watch.
Once Seaton arrived at the store, both suspects fled. While fleeing, one of the suspects turned and pointed a gun in Seaton’s direction. That’s when Seaton grabbed his AK-47, which sat next to him on his truck’s passenger seat.
The suspects ran into a getaway vehicle located in the 2500 block of Mundale Ave. Seaton pursued the suspects in his truck to the intersection of Smithville Rd. and Linden Ave. He gave up his pursuit at that point, returned to his store, and called police.
Seaton said that this is the first time he’s stopped a robbery happening at his store. His cellphone store had been robbed three times before since he opened it last December.
“Give these guys [robbery suspects] punishment. They’re just stealing them [cell phones] and the courts just let them out the next day. It’s not the police it’s the justice system. The police arrest them, and the courts just let them out the next day,” Seaton said.
As a Brit living and working in the USA, her views on gun ownership and the second amendment have evolved over the years, allowing her to fully understand both sides of the gun control debate and she regularly speaks on the matter to help others understand why she feels the second amendment must be protected and why she chooses to be an advocate for the shooting sports.
