After a rider on the Broad Street Line took a covert photograph of a man who appeared to be armed and sent it to SEPTA police, officers caught up with the suspect in Center City and confiscated several weapons, authorities said Tuesday.
"This is a story of great public involvement and tremendous police work," SEPTA Police Chief Thomas Nestel said Tuesday.
Darryl Donahue, 52, was arrested about 10 p.m. Monday near LOVE Park by a detective who knew what the suspect looked like from the photograph, Nestel said. Donahue, who remained in custody Tuesday, had four BB guns and three large knives on his person, police said. Charges were pending late Tuesday.
