TROY -- Two brave people helped police catch an armed suspect on the run.

Authorities say Donald Lewis of Cohoes was involved in a fight near 87 Fourth St. Wednesday afternoon and ran when police showed up.

Two people in the area of the Bethany Center on State Street helped police by blocking the suspect's path.

Police say Lewis then pulled a fully-loaded handgun but dropped it when officers ordered him to.

Lewis will be arraigned Thursday morning in Troy Police Court.
