Chinatown Grocer to Receive Jubilee Medal
Remember the name David Chen?
He's the grocer that chased down a thief from the Lucky Moose Food mart in Toronto's Chinattown and then was charged with assault after he tied up the robber with twine and threw him in the back of a van.
Well - he's going to be awarded the Diamond Jubilee Medal.
Chen is the inspiration behind the Conservative's citizen arrest law that empowers citizens to arrest a suspect if caught red-handed if the option of using police has been ruled out.
Chen was acquitted of assault and forcible confinement charges last year.
He'll receive the medal on January 12th.
