At Job Interview Teenager Catches Thief And Gets Hired

In New Orleans, 18-year-old Devin Washington was interviewing for a job at a Popeyes Famous Fried Chicken restaurant on Saturday afternoon. During that time, a thief tried to steal money from a cash register and get away.

Pablo Ciscart, 50, had asked the cashier to make change for a dollar. When the register was opened, he grabbed a handful of cash and tried to run away.

Manager Danyanna Metoyer blocked the exit, and Washington grabbed Ciscart in a "reverse bear hug." Ciscart realized he could not get away, so he threw the money on the floor and gave up. Then, Washington and cook Michael Ford held Ciscart until police arrived.

Ciscart was arrested on a robbery charge. Metoyer said she and her assistant manager, Dominique Griffin, had already made the decision to hire Washington but his bravery and quick thinking only helped to seal the deal. Afterward, she told him, "You're hired. You earned it."
