Fresh from a doctor’s appointment, Kendrick Holloway was sitting on the porch of his Detroit home Friday afternoon when two males — one pointing a gun — walked right up to him, WJBK-TV reported.

“The guy kept saying, ‘I will shoot you,'” Holloway, 68, recalled to the station.

And given his eyes were dilated from the doctor visit and his vision was blurry, WJBK said, the Vietnam veteran and cancer survivor wasn’t game for a confrontation.

“It happened so fast, I didn’t have a chance to think about it,” Holloway added to the station. “My biggest thing was, ‘Just don’t shoot me, take the jewelry’ … That’s replaceable, I’m not.”

Within two minutes, jewelry of sentimental value was ripped and snatched right off his body as he sat there at gunpoint, WJBK said.

The hopeful news?

Fortunately, a doorbell video camera recorded the armed theft, the station said.

What’s more, while a WJBK reporter was interviewing Holloway, Detroit police called a family member saying a possible suspect had been arrested.

‘If you need something that bad, get a job’

“That’s fast action,” Holloway told the station regarding the arrest. “Police are doing their job. They’re working it. They’re giving a Vietnam veteran some props … I love ’em for it.”

And he had strong words for his assailants.

“They screwed up,” Holloway told WDIV-TV. “You shouldn’t bother no one. If you need something that bad, get a job.”

And he’s sure all those involved will be brought to justice.

“I wish ’em well,” Holloway added to WJBK, “when they go to prison.”
