Robbery victim wants to thank Good Samaritans who came to his rescue

HOUSTON — A couple of strangers came to the rescue when a man was robbed at gunpoint. Now, the victim wants to say thank you to the Good Samaritans.

Police believe the criminal who was canvassing a neighborhood in the 2500 block of Wichita near Hermann Park had no idea what he was in for when he picked his target.

The victim in this case had just walked back to his car from a bar around the corner.

Kevin Dorsey says he hadn’t even closed his car door Thursday night when a man wearing all black and a ski mask put a gun to his chest. The man took Dorsey’s wallet, cell phone and car keys.

After he was robbed, Dorsey began running down the street and says two men in a Mercedes asked him what had happened.

Dorsey told them and they not only caught up with the suspect, but they started shooting at him.

The suspect fired back. In the end, the two witnesses turned vigilantes won and took down the bad guy.

“I don’t believe in guns,” said Dorsey. “I don’t own a gun. I’m totally at the mercy of my saviors. They obviously sent two angels to help me. These people protected me when I couldn’t protect myself.”

After the robber had been shot, police say he jumped over a fence and was attacked by a German Shepherd. That attack prevented him from getting away.

The suspect, identified as Christopher Hutchins, is being treated at Ben Taub Hospital. He’s expected to recover.

    Those Good Samaritans need more practice at the gun range.
    The German Shepherd deserves a cookie/biscuit.

    ‘I’m totally at the mercy of my saviors. They obviously sent two angels to help me.’

    The victim didn’t say this. Saviors was singular (however slurred), but it definitely was “He” not ‘they’. The angels were the two guys with guns sent from his Savior.

    KHOU ought to be embarrassed.

    Just as I’ve always suspected. Take a left of center, low information obama voter who doesn’t like guns (and couldn’t tell you the difference between the second amendment and any other amendment), put him in a situation where his life is threatened and his stuff is forcefully redistributed and, whaddyaknow, he finds God and understand conservatism in an instant. One would think that libtards would be only to willing to empty their pockets for a marginalized and misunderstood victim of police profiling / sarc.

    Nothing cures liberalism faster than becoming a victim of their own belief. Anxiously waiting release of mug shot. Another Obama tee shirt?

    “These people protected me when I couldn’t protect myself.”

    YOU (libtard) chose not be able to protect yourself. What are you going to do when there isn’t someone (conservative) around next time to protect you?

    Have you learned anything?

    1. I would like him to expound on “I don’t believe in guns” and what part that played in his victim-hood here.

    2. Did that sentiment change after this experience?

    3. If not, why not? And if not – does he expect anything to go different the next time something like this happens to him, or anyone else?

    I want some journalist or news reporter to ask these questions, at least.

    Please.

    If you’re not gonna carry a gun at least carry a fake wallet with a few bucks in it and some of those damned AARP cards and fake credit cards those bastards keep sending you.

    BWAHAhahahahahahaha!

    The only thing that would have made that funnier is if he would have jumped the fence into the police dog kennel!

    Notice the black Benz with the Good Sams in it TOOK OFF, wisely.

    I’m waiting for the mug shot, too, though it’s a foregone conclusion.

    Can’t help wondering if the victim had an Obama sticker on his car and that’s why he got selected for mugging.

    I was hoping the robber was mauled to death by the dog, so I’m dissapointed…

    It would have been a happier ending if it went like this…

    “The suspect fired back. In the end, the two witnesses turned vigilantes won and took down the bad guy, who screamed horribly as they emptied over 15 rounds into his body, before falling to the ground in sheer agony, where he slowly died waiting for the ambulance which arrived 30 minutes later”

    I’m against gun ownership but thanks for intervening.

    I don’t want a job, I have an EBT card.

    I’m an atheist but appreciate you praying for me.

    I urge these folks to keep their anonymity. The wording in the story appears to me as bait for what some would regard as vigilantism. Not that its bad in my book in this case.
