MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) –A Good Samaritan is being applauded for stepping in during an armed robbery at a Milford restaurant.

Police said 21-year-old Royshon Ferguson and 22-year-old Greg McLaurin, both of New Haven, entered the Smashburger on Boston Post Road at around 8:50 p.m. Friday, brandishing guns and demanding money.

They threatened to shoot the manager if they didn’t open the safe.

That’s when police said a Good Samaritan who was legally carrying a gun intervened.

Police said the two suspects ran off.

A Milford Police K-9 Officer eventually found the suspects hiding out on the property of a nearby self storage facility.
