Po­lice say thank you

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

THE Win­nipeg Po­lice Ser­vice would like to thank a cit­i­zen who came to the aid of an of­fi­cer, then left be­fore we could get his name.

The of­fi­cer was pa­trolling the 400 block of Main Street just af­ter mid­night on New Year’s Eve when he saw an as­sault in progress. He stepped up to ar­rest a man but a con­fronta­tion erupted.

At that point, an un­in­volved cit­i­zen of­fered to help the of­fi­cer un­til backup ar­rived. As a re­sult of that help, the com­bat­ive and bel­liger­ent sus­pect was safely taken into po­lice cus­tody.

The Good Sa­mar­i­tan left in a ve­hi­cle be­fore po­lice could thank him. But we would like him to know we ap­pre­ci­ate the help.
