Bank Robbery foiled by iPhone user

August 5, 2011

What a great example of a watchful person on the street stopping a crime by taking a photo with his smartphone.

As a bank robbery was about to go down, a 23 year old man who was outside on a break, saw the robber dressed in a wig.  Ed G.  discretely photographed the would-be-robber using his iPhone.  It was the quick actions of this smartphone user that brought police to the scene immediately and stopped the bank robbery.

This robbery was happening in the high tech capital of the east coast, Cambridge, Massachusetts.  But not on this iPhone guy’s watch!  Bravo Ed Grigoryants!
