Woman calls 911, cops arrest suspect

A North Park Avenue woman who secretly dialed 911 while being robbed Saturday night helped police arrest the 40-year-old Mecca Township man they say committed the crime.

Warren Township Patrolman Jason Lamtman was dispatched to a 911 call at 9:53 p.m. in which there was no one on the phone, knocked on the door, seeing nothing unusual until a woman quickly descended the stairs in the house and came to the door, pointing to a man behind her saying, “This guy is robbing me.”

The patrolman pulled out his gun and ordered the man to the ground, but he refused, so Lamtman holstered his weapon and took the man to the ground.
