Pa. mugging suspect lauds young captors

BERLIN, Pa. (AP) - July 13, 2012

Nineteen-year-old Dakota Glessner tells the Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown that Joshua Foy told Glessner and his brother, Cody, "It's OK. Ya' done what ya' had to do" after the brothers tackled Foy and held him until Berlin police could arrive Monday.

Berlin police Sgt. Chad Salley says credits the brothers with stopping Foy who allegedly mugged the market's office manager as she walked to the bank to deposit the store's money about 3:30 p.m.

Hearing the woman's screams, Dakota and his 23-year-old brother chased and tackled Foy, who remained in the Somerset County Jail on Thursday. Online court records don't list an attorney.
