News Anchors Stunned as Drivers Help Apprehend Robbery Suspect

News anchors in Texas were left absolutely stunned while covering a car chase on Wednesday afternoon.

KXAS-TV’s helicopter was following a robbery suspect in Dallas who was attempting to flee the scene in an allegedly stolen white Dodge Challenger. When the car suddenly crashed into two others, the suspect tried to get out of the car — but to little avail, as passengers from those vehicles stormed out and angrily confronted the suspect. They appeared to be yelling at him as he was stumbling to get out of the car.

Luckily, the boyfriend-and-girlfriend pair was able to successfully apprehend the suspect and he was thrown to the ground just as police arrived. One of the anchors narrating the chase said it was a situation he has probably never seen before.

A Dallas police spokesman tweeted his appreciation for the help the officers received:

You can watch the dramatic confrontation unfold below, via KXAS (apologies for the poor quality):
