NEW YORK (AP) — A New York Police Department rookie just couldn’t wait to get started.

One of the NYPD’s newest officers made his first arrest Thursday just minutes after graduating from the Police Academy in a ceremony at Madison Square Garden.

Officer Dariel Firpo, 23, was leaving the midtown Manhattan ceremony when he saw a 79-year-old man being robbed of his wallet and thrown to the ground by a mugger, police said. The mugger tried to run away, but Firpo caught him without incident, they said.

“Officer Firpo made us all proud,” police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. “He’s off to a great start.”
