A group of Northern Kentucky construction workers are being credited for responding to a cry and helping subdue a street robbery suspect.
Covington police said a string of robberies began in the vicinity of 700 to 800 block of Scott Blvd between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Tuesday.
The suspect, Corey Miller, 29, of Covington, is accused of forcibly robbing three women during that time frame.
After the third robbery in the City Center Garage, the victim chased the robber while yelling for help, police said.
Nearby construction workers noticed the commotion and were able to subdue the suspect until officers arrived to take him into custody.
Covington Assistant Chief Robert Nader thanked the construction workers for their help.
Detectives were able to charge Miller with all three robberies through their investigation, police said.
Miller also had a warrant out of Hamilton County for robbery, police said.
