Police are crediting a pair of Good Samaritans for saving a Virginia officer from being more severely beaten during an assault.
“If the two individuals watching nearby had not selflessly taken it upon themselves to assist the officer, the injuries he sustained could have been much worse,” said Fredericksburg Police Chief Brian Layton. “I can’t thank them enough for bravely putting themselves in danger.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The incident unfolded Wednesday on a Walmart parking lot in Fredericksburg when police were called to respond to a suspicious person rifling through another person’s car.
According to city police spokeswoman Sarah Morris, the officer found stolen items in the man’s possession and tried to detain him. The man who is identified as 31-year-old Joshua J. Duggins reportedly tried to walk away from the officer but then turned around and hit the officer.
The police officer fell to the ground and Duggins allegedly continued punching him.
Two men saw the events unfold and ran over to get Duggins off of the officer.
According to the report, Duggins was charged with assault on a law enforcement officer and malicious wounding, and placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
