NY: Armed Samaritan Arrested in New York City

MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- A 43-year-old man has been charged after he allegedly opened fire when a homeless panhandler threatened to mug a woman at a Midtown subway station on Tuesday night.

The incident was reported at the 49th Street subway station, on Seventh Avenue, just after 9 p.m.

The panhandler was holding open an emergency gate when he told the 40-year-old woman he would steal her purse if she didn't hand over her money.

The gunman ordered the would be mugger to "leave her alone" and then fired a couple warning shots, thwarting the robbery attempt.
