Cop couple on date night foil armed robber
An off-duty police couple managed to foil an attempted robbery while out on date night.
LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY — Of all the fast-food joints in all of Kentucky, one supremely unlucky criminal had to try and rob the one with the off-duty cops in it.
According to WHAS11, the incident occurred at a Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers store in Louisville around 10 p.m. on February 15.
Married Elizabethtown officers Nicole McKeown and Detective Chase McKeown were inside for date night when a masked suspect sauntered in.
According to the Louisville Metro Police Department, the perp, later identified as Justin Carter, flashed his gun at an employee and demanded cash.
The McKeown were seated at the very back of the store, but it didn't take long for them to figure out what was happening.
Slowly, they get up from their sears and draw their weapons, splitting up as they beeline toward the suspect.
When Carter sees the armed pair, he drops his weapon and runs outta there.
The officers follow after him, eventually detaining him about a block later.
WHAS11 reports that Carter has been charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, receiving stolen property, and robbery.
