Ray Vasquez, 25, and Matthew Villarrell, 21, were both charged with felonies following a melee outside of the Bank of America building around 7:45 p.m., police said.

The thieves may have been on the lookout for police, but in their attempted getaway they failed to take into consideration two citizens flagged down by the distressed victim.

“Thanks to them we’ve been able to lock up two bad guys,” said Travis Holley, a Roswell Police Department spokesman, who declined to immediately identify the two citizens.
