Eliza Dushku happy after men held over bag theft

Actress Eliza Dushku is celebrating after two men accused of stealing her bag were apprehended following her appeal for help on Twitter.com on Friday (31Oct14).

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer star was in Providence, Rhode Island for a comic book convention and was outside her hotel when two men dressed in Halloween costumes took her duffle bag.


Dushku implored hotel staff and the police to help but they were unable to take action against the perpetrators so Dushku enlisted her fans' help via Twitter.com by uploading a picture of her bag, describing one of the culprits and detailing their last known location inside the building.


The method worked in tracking down the suspects, and Dushku thanked her helpers on Saturday (01Nov14), writing, "Update: men found in hotel, w/my (with my) luggage, apprehended & spending wknd (weekend) in jail until... U guys helped this happen. I am VERY grateful."
