Ottawa Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki was safeguarding more than just the objective line over the weekend.
” Borocop” Borowiecki measured up to his name Sunday afternoon after he thwarted a would-be break-in in the Gastown district of Vancouver
The 30- year-old NHL professional saw a man break the window of a parked cars and truck and take out a backpack. That’s when, according to the Ottawa Person, he purchased the suspect to drop the products. The guy declined and rather took off toward Borowiecki on his bike– permitting the 6-foot-2, 205- pound defenseman to clothesline him.
” I informed him to offer me the bag and he was telling me to get out of the method,” he stated following Monday’s practice.
Borowiecki battled the male to the ground and eventually recuperated the backpack.
In a statement gotten by CBS Sports, Vancouver Authorities stated they were “grateful” for Borowiecki’s intervention.
” We are grateful for Mark’s support and do suggest that if anybody does witness a crime to instantly alert the Vancouver Cops and to stay safe.”
It was not immediately clear if the suspect was collared. The bag was said to consist of passports and other important items.
The Senators poked fun at Borowiecki’s heroism Tuesday with a modified clip from the 1987 movie “RoboCop.”
