SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Off-duty city Officer Kevin Kilcullen decided to stop off at CVS on his way to a dentist appointment Tuesday morning, when he spied a suspected robbery.

Standing just outside the door of the drug store on 839 McClellan St., Kilcullen yelled inside for the clerk to call police, then sprang into action.

He raced into the parking lot and grabbed the suspect, who managed to wriggle free, said his younger brother, Lt. Brian Kilcullen, who is the department's spokesman.
