In a wild video from Chicago, a black-belt apprehended a would be shoplifter and even streamed the incident on Facebook Live until police showed up.
The perpetrator, Christopher Cruz, was taken to the ground by a third-degree black belt jiu-jitsu instructor named Idriz Redzovic in a 7-Eleven convenience store. The perpetrator had taken food from the business and then returned when he was asked to leave by an employee. He then struck the employee.
Watch the moment in the video next.
In the video, Cruz can be heard begging the man to let him go, “Hey, hey homie. Let me go, man, homie.”
“What are you, Russian?” Cruz said. “Syrian?”
“I’m Bosnian,” replies Redzovic.
“We’re Bosnian homies!” Cruz replies.
“You’re a Bosnian nothing,” responds Redzovic.
The black belt then held the perpetrator for over 15 minutes until the police arrived.
“The offender took a fighting stance,” a Chicago Police Department spokesperson said, “at which time the employee informed the offender that if he did not leave the police would be called.”
“The offender then punched the employee/victim and a witness detained the offender until police arrived,” the spokesperson continued.
The cops arrived on scene and Redzovic got off Cruz’s back. Cruz was then handcuffed and taken away.
“What’s going on?” a police officer asked upon coming onto the scene.
“I know Jiu-Jitsu,” Redzovic replied, “so…”
Watch the full video next from Redzovic’s live of the thief being detained. The video shows Cruz slinging vulgarities at the man.
Police charged Cruz with misdemeanor battery and retail theft. He was released by CPD five hours later.
Thankfully, nobody beside the perpetrator was injured in any way, but it shows the kinds of crimes that are becoming more commonplace in Biden’s America. Property crimes have been increasing in every state after the war on police started by the Democrats two years ago. Situations like this are the result of it.
