On Thursday, February 19th 2015 at approximately 2:00pm a male subject used a hammer to smash a jewellery display case in a retail jewellery store located at Rideau Centre, Ottawa, Ontario.  The subject grabbed a watch from the compromised display case.

Two male bystanders who witnessed the incident decided to apprehend the subject and hold him until Police arrived.  This is an action that neither Police Services or JVC promotes, but as a result of their decision to apprehend the subject, he was arrested and subsequently charged with several offenses.
