FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- A gun-carrying Flagstaff man is being credited with helping stop a bank robbery suspect.

Dave Young was driving up to the Arizona Central Credit Union branch last Friday when he saw a friend's son trying to stop a man jumping over a fence.

Young says he quickly confirmed a bank robbery had occurred and took off after the two in his vehicle.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports Young caught up with the pair and placed his hand on his sidearm, showing the suspect that he was armed. He didn't pull his gun.

Young called 911 and police took the suspect into custody.

Young says he's held a concealed carry permit since 1998. In Arizona, gun owners can carry a concealed or exposed weapon without a permit or training.
