Detroit Thieves Rob Vietnam Vet On His Own Front Porch

“The guy kept saying ‘I will shoot you.’ I said ‘You (don’t have) to shoot me, take what you’ve want,'” Kendrick Holloway said.

Holloway, 68, was robbed at gunpoint sitting on his porch on Greenlawn Friday afternoon. The Vietnam vet and cancer survivor was just coming back from a doctor’s appointment. His eyes were dilated and his vision was blurry.

“I dropped the keys, I bent over to pick them up and they were right on me,” he said.

Kendrick says the entire ordeal took less than two minutes, but it was all caught on surveillance video thanks to a doorbell camera.

“It happened so fast, I didn’t even have a chance to think about it,” Holloway said. “The biggest thing was don’t shoot, just take the jewelry. That’s replaceable, I’m not.”

They did steal sentimental valuable jewelry right off of Kendrick’s body. Then while Kendrick was speaking to FOX 2, Detroit police called a family member to say they had arrested a possible suspect.

“That’s fast action,” Holloway said. “Police is doing their job. They are working it. They are giving a Vietnam veteran some props.

“I love them for it.”

And Kendrick is confident it’s only a matter of time before all the people involved in the crime are arrested.

“I wish them well when they go to prison,” he said.
