Everyday Towing Hero in South Africa

Here's the story from The Citizen:

JOHANNESBURG - A tow truck driver and petrol attendants helped police arrest an armed robber who robbed a petrol station north of Pretoria at the weekend.

Captain Jan Sepato yesterday said that four men driving a Ford Laser went to the petrol station on Friday night.

Three of the men went into the Excel garage’s shop where they held a cashier at gunpoint.

Two petrol attendants were also robbed. A third petrol attendant saw the trouble and fled, alerting a tow truck driver. The escape car was followed by the tow truck and police later arrested the car owner.
