Muhammad was robbed of his earrings and backpack, which contained his laptop. He immediately pulled out his cell phone to call 911.
Muhammad followed the suspect down the street from a distance, until he was advised to stop by 911 dispatchers.
Along the way, suspect robbed two other women at gunpoint, according to the police report.
“One lady, she was in tears. She said she couldn't believe it. He had the gun in her mouth,” said Muhammad, who came in contact with the women after they ran from the suspect.
Within 10 minutes of receiving Muhammad's call for help, Tampa police had several officers searching for the suspect, described as being shirtless and holding a handgun.
Officers spotted the suspect, 18-year-old Antwan Robertson, and chased him to a nearby Burger King parking lot. They found him hiding behind a dumpster.
Muhammad got back his stolen jewelry and backpack, which held his laptop and ID, after officers apprehended the suspect.
He said the ordeal gave him an appreciation for the officers involved.
Give that last sentence a read. He claims to be anti-police. Yet, he called the police and then claimed to have an appreciation for the police and what they do. That seems a bit contradicting.
Both BLM and the New Black Panthers denied he had a leadership position in their group after the incident. Is that because of his comments? Who wants to bet they would have done the same thing? That's called hypocrisy.
