    Good Samaritan Disarms, Detains Gunman In Pompano Beach

    WTVJ-TV updated 8:46 p.m. ET, Fri., Feb. 13, 2009

    POMPANO BEACH, Fla. - Police are praising a Good Samaritan who was able to disarm and detain a gunman during a robbery.

    According to police, BSO deputies responded to a report of shots fired at 3050 N. Andrews Ave. in Pompano Beach at about 11:40 a.m. When deputies arrived, they discovered an armed robbery attempt had been thwarted by a Good Samaritan.

    The Good Samaritan saw the robbery and was able to disarm and detain the suspect at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

    There was a report of one shot fired during the course of the event, but nobody was struck or injured.

    Initial reports from the scene indicated that the Good Samaritan had a CCW license.

    The gunman was arrested and police are investigating.

    Gun-toting good Samaritan foils Pompano Beach robbery
    BY DAVID SMILEY

    Police say Fabrizzo Sandovaz might want to work on his planning and execution.

    First, he forgot to put his Jeep in park when he allegedly pulled behind Walid Hamad's car and jumped out to rob the 48-year-old Palm Beach County man.

    Second, the spot he chose for the armed robbery happened to be in the driveway of a Pompano Beach surveillance and securities retail store where employees are particularly active in exercising their Second Amendment rights.

    ''Friday the 13th wasn't a lucky day for this robber,'' said Mike Jachles, a spokesman with the Broward Sheriff's Office.

    As Sandovaz held a gun to Hamad and told him to hand over a bag in his car, the gunman's own vehicle slowly cruised into two parked cars belonging to employees of IC Realtime Security Solutions, 3050 N. Andrews Ave. extension

    Hearing the crash, several employees ran outside, where they saw the armed robbery taking place.

    ''We all ran outside and it so happened that one of our customers had a license to carry and had a weapon on him,'' said Frank Fishman, a sales representative at the store.

    Within seconds, Sandovaz, 21, found himself taking orders with a gun to his head as Everol Moulton, a store customer with a concealed weapons permit, told Sandovaz to drop the gun and kick it toward him.

    Sandovaz dropped the firearm and ran. Moulton fired one shot and missed, and then he and several store employees gave chase.

    Fishman said they caught up to the suspect about 150 yards down the road, tackled him and then held him down until the Broward Sheriff's Office arrived.

    Adding insult to injury, the incident was recorded on the store's surveillance cameras.

    ''This guy piked the worst place in the world,'' Fishman said, "because most of us carry and we're security guys.''
    Wow! Not quite so good. Shooting at someone fleeing the scene.

    Security company, and it's the customer who is armed? At least, that is all they reported.

    On the other hand, it is the Miami Herald, and as anti-gun as they are, who knows whether they could get a story right.

    Yeah I was wondering about that. Could be that the news must got the story slightly inaccurate...

    That's like the 2nd or 3rd version of the story I've seen.... we're not getting the exact details. Saw the story on MSNBC's site and they make no mention of the samaritan firing a shot at a fleeing BG, and mention that the samaritan grabbed his gun from his car when he went outside to investigate.
