Salvation Army truck drivers chase a suspected purse snatcher!
I just got back to my desk after meeting ABC Eyewitness News reporter Rudabeh Shahbazi at The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Long Beach.
She paid a visit to interview two Salvation Army truck drivers who sprung into action to chase a suspected purse snatcher last week near the corner of Cherry Avenue and Del Amo Boulevard in Long Beach.
<<< UPDATE: Ms. Shahbazi just called to say that she was pulled off this story to cover breaking news. Our story won't air tonight as planned, but hopefully will another day. >>>
Salvation Army employee Scott Beaubien was showing trainee Mariano Bejaro the ropes during his first week on the job. They were doing a routine pick-up at one of our donation sites when they saw a man running down the street with a purse under his arm.
Yesterday the Long Beach Press Telegram ran a story about our two local heros. Click here to read it online.
Ms. Shabazi expects her story to air on today’s afternoon or evening broadcast on Channel 7, ABC News in Los Angeles. Please tune in and watch to find out how this great story ends!
Thank you to Scott and Mariano for Doing the Most Good in Long Beach!
