A burglary suspect ends up behind bars after a Good Samaritan stepped in to help Tulsa Police.

It started about 7 AM Monday near 14th and Quincy. A woman called officers after seeing someone in her house.

A few minutes later, Tulsa Police chased a truck the suspect is believed to have stolen. The man, identifed by Tulsa Police as 36-year-old Gary Wilson, crashed into a utility pole and ran away on foot.

A Good Samaritan with a concealed weapon permit approached Wilson. Tulsa Police say Wilson pulled a knife and when the Good Samaritan pulled his gun, Wilson ran off.

Tulsa Police tracked Wilson down and arrested him.
