Description:Vinnie Barbieri is being called the hero bouncer of Henrietta Hudson Bar & Girl in the West Village after he wrestled a thief to the ground, and held him until the cops arrived.
"I would hope everyone would do the same thing," Barbieri told PIX11, "I'm no hero."
It was 4:15 a.m. Saturday outside the longest running lesbian bar in the country, when the bouncer heard a woman's cries for help from across the street. "He was trying to steal her purse, actually dragging her across the street."(1:43)
