COVINGTON, GA (CBS ATLANTA) -
A suspected shoplifter tried walking out of a Covington grocery store with steaks stuffed down his pants, but after he allegedly punched a loss prevention officer in the face, a 17-year-old grocery bagger stepped in.
The suspect didn't know the grocery bagger was actually a Covington Police Explorer, and the whole thing was caught on camera.
"He struck her in the face, then I went over to help her and stop him," recalled Robert Bradford, the grocery bagger turned crime fighter. "He hit her. You don't hit a lady, and that's what my parents always taught me."
The cameras didn't catch 42-year-old Jeffery Pace allegedly punching the loss prevention officer in her face. But Robert saw it and before Pace could flee, Robert wrestled him to the ground.
"I wouldn't call myself a hero, I just did what everybody else would do," explained Robert.
Robert had just started his very first job bagging groceries at the Kroger grocery store in Covington. But Pace didn't count him being part of the Covington Police Explorers, a program for teenagers who are interested in becoming police officers.
"The next thing I know, I was on him," said Robert.
During the struggle, Robert heard a familiar voice.
"I heard my name being yelled and I looked around and it sounded like my dad and then I realized my phone had butt-dialed him," laughed Robert.
"I was saying, 'Robert, Robert!'" exclaimed Robert's father, Capt. Philip Bradford of the Covington Police Department. "I heard all of this commotion and I heard someone saying, ‘Get on the ground, and stop! You better stop.'"
The surveillance video showed Robert as he took his phone out of his pocket and ended the call.
That made Phillip Bradford spring into action.
"Immediately I panicked and I jumped in my car," said Philip Bradford.
By the time Philip Bradford arrived at the grocery store, police had already arrested Pace. Then Robert tucked in his shirt and headed right back to work.
"He did good, I was proud of him," said Philip Bradford.
"It just happened real fast, it was instinct and I'm ready for round two," laughed Robert.
Pace was charged with shoplifting, public drunkenness and battery. Investigators say he also violated his probation.
