An alleged thief was detained by Good Samaritans after he tried to steal a 62-year-old woman's wallet at a grocery store in Columbus, Ohio on Monday.

The disabled victim, Rosemary Smith, cashed a check at a Kroger customer service counter and was walking out of the store with her cash in hand, when the thief spotted her and followed her out. As Smith was about to get into her brother's car waiting outside the store, the thief grabbed her wallet with all the cash inside.

The suspect then took off running, but he didn't get too far. Several customers in the parking lot ran after the suspect, identified as 38-year-old Richie Dennison, and detained him until police arrived.

Smith fell during the incident, but is on the mend.
