While the crime played out, neither of the men in the cab noticed a Berks County sheriff's cruiser sitting right behind them. The deputy put his emergency lights on and got out of his car to approach the taxi cab. The terrified taxi driver in the middle of chaos stopped and said, "There's a cop behind us." The deputy pulled out his weapon and ordered the suspect out of the vehicle. "Oh my God you're a lifesaver," the cab driver told the deputy. Victor Herrea, 18, was arrested and jailed on numerous charges including robbery and making terroristic threats. Officials later determined the weapon was in fact a pellet gun. The victim was not hurt during the incident.
