A Pulitzer-Prize winning photographer from the Chronicle who now teaches at San Jose State thwarted a bank robbery in San Jose this week.
When Kim Komenich saw a teller being robbed, he walked up behind the man and held him in a bear hug until police arrived.
“Between classes, I go out there and do what I can do to make the world a little better for people,” joked Komenich to The Chronicle.
The story also was published in the London Telegraph.
Remembers Steve Cottrell: “He was one of the genuine good guys I met during my years at the M&M Tavern,” a popular hang-out for newspaper people in San Francisco in the ’80s and earlier.
