An Albanian in the US has faced an incident after a thief stole his fiancée’s purse.

Marko Kepi, who is running for council member in New York, managed to neutralize the thief.

The latter got into their car, took the bag he had found inside it and ran away, while Cape and other persons were put in pursuit.

“He tried to leave, but I grabbed him and took his bag. “I told him: ‘You are not going anywhere until the police come,'” Cape told US media.

Thanks to Cape’s quick reaction, the thief was arrested by police.

He has been identified as a 21-year-old named Amir Aspek, while during the neutralization by the Albanians he is heard saying: “Let me go, let me leave”.
