Locksmith robbed while assisting stranded driver

HOUSTON – As a Richmond man was on his way to be the hero for a driver who was locked outside his car, he himself became a victim.

It was a routine call to assist a stranded driver, and J.D. Davis, a locksmith, was en route.

"When I got there, I saw two gentlemen trying to open his car in an improper method," Davis said.

Davis said when he arrived, the two men were using crowbars to open the door. He stopped them and unlocked the car the right way.

But the story doesn't end there.

What happened next was caught on surveillance video.

After the door was unlocked, the two men who had been assisting the driver hung around.

"They were commenting, saying 'Hey, that's nice equipment,'" Davis said.
