NY col­lege quar­ter­back tack­les purse snatcher

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Univer­sity of Rochester quar­ter­back Daniel Bron­son had to switch to de­fense re­cently af­ter wit­ness­ing a purse snatch­ing.

The ju­nior from Lock­port in Ni­a­gara County was leav­ing a restau­rant in his home­town on Nov. 5 when he saw a man run past a 73-year-old woman and yank her purse out of her arms as she walked with her hus­band.

Bron­son took off af­ter the man, who dropped the purse but kept on run­ning. Bron­son tack­led the sus­pect and held him down with the help of his girl­friend’s fa­ther and brother. Po­lice ar­rived and ar­rested the 31-year-old sus­pect on a rob­bery charge.

Bron­son’s off-field hero­ics came just hours af­ter he piled up nearly 400 yards in to­tal of­fense and ran 60 yards for a touch­down in a three-point home loss to Worcester Polytech­nic In­sti­tute.
