Woman grabs thief's gun, leads cops to suspect

MINNEAPOLIS — Cammy McGraw did everything police say you should not do. She came upon the armed robbery, jumped in to help, and then went after 23-year-old Jesse Scott Johnson of Arden Hills.

McGraw is being hailed a hero. She was on her way to yoga class last Saturday when she saw two men struggling near the intersection of Central and 23rd Avenue NE in Minneapolis. Their struggle came into her traffic lane.

McGraw grabbed the handgun and then other people came over to see what was going on. So with the suspect's gun in her hand, McGraw followed him, giving a detailed description to the 911 dispatcher, eventually earning the praise of Minneapolis Police.
