CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
A suspect was in court Wednesday after two men stopped a street robbery in Cincinnati.
Louis Stevenson had his bond set at $250,000 during an arraignment.
According to authorities, a businessman was walking with a duffle bag around 10:30 a.m. in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine, after removing money from an ATM.
Nearby surveillance video caught the suspect attacking him and trying to rob him.
Two men saw the attack and came to his aid.
The men were able to fight off the suspect and keep track of him until police arrived on the scene.
One of the men is homeless and the other just recently found a place to stay after being homeless himself.
The Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition called the men "heroes" releasing this statement:
"Too often we are incorrectly taught to be afraid of people who are experiencing homelessness. Hopefully the heroic action of these [two] people will help undue our negative stereotypes."
"It could be any of my relatives as well and I would hope that somebody would do the same for them and for myself," one of the men who wished to be identified simply as "David" said.
David was homeless a few months back and is still looking for work, but he says he recently found a place to stay.
"Even though you're down on your luck, there's other alternatives to that type of crime," David said. "Reach out to the organizations; get help that way, don't take it out on other people because that could be your mother or your father …"
"Don't judge a book by the cover," fellow Good Samaritan Chad said.
Chad kept track of the alleged attacker until the police showed up.
He was hesitant to welcome the title of hero', "I don't deserve any special distinction like that," he said. "I did what anybody else would do."
Stevenson was taken into custody and charged with robbery and obstructing official business.
