A New York City subway cleaner says she was just doing her job, but we're pretty sure "catching criminals" was not an MTA requirement.
Nevertheless, when Felicia Williams saw a man allegedly drag a woman down stairs and steal her wallet, the 45-year-old subway worker took action. Williams followed the suspect, who ran out of the 18th St. station and changed his outfit, the New York Daily News reported. She then waved down passing school safety officers, who stopped the man, later identified as 20-year-old Robert McLeod.
McLeod was arrested and charged with robbery and assault. His victim, 24, suffered a broken leg.
“Ms. Williams’ act speaks highly of her dedication and concern for the safety of our customers and is yet another example of our employees going above and beyond the call of duty,” said stations department supervisor, Algene Hall.
Williams, meanwhile, has made a new friend in the woman she assisted.
