Good Samaritan Robbed After Pushing Man's Truck To Gas Station
ROCK HILL, S.C. -- A man robbed a good Samaritan who had helped pushed his truck to a nearby gas station, police said.
Darvin Wayne Capps, 25, of York, was charged with strong-arm robbery in the incident, in which he pulled a razor blade and stole a necklace, according to a police report.
"It's getting to the point that it's hard to be a good Samaritan because you don't know who you're stopping to help," police Lt. Jerry Waldrop said.
Kevin Tucker, 21, said he will be more careful in the future, but still plans to help people when he can.
"Everybody's not like that," Tucker said.
According to the police report, Tucker and his girlfriend noticed a truck in the road around 2 a.m. Monday.
The driver asked the couple for money and a push to a gas station. Tucker used his car to push the truck and the driver asked again for gas money and to use a cell phone.
After using the phone and giving it back, the man pulled out a razor blade and started swinging at Tucker, according to the report.
Tucker's forearm was scraped. He said the man drove off after yanking off his necklace.
Police later arrested Capps, who had the broken necklace on him, according to the report. He remained in custody Wednesday.
