We all need to help each other these days but this situation is pretty different with an armed citizen helping a cop. This is a great example of why it’s a really good reason to carry.

A rookie cop was rescued from a robbery suspect after an armed citizen stepped in and saved him from a beating. Robbery suspect Jermaine Williams was beating the officer with his own baton.

The two suspects in the burglary, Tremaine and Jermaine Williams, are twin brothers. Police say Tremaine was already gone when they arrived, but Jermaine was there and when he saw the officers he took off on foot.

During the chase the two officers became separated. Eller found himself alone when he caught up to Jermaine in a driveway of a nearby home and as he tried to place him under arrest, a fight ensued. During the struggle, Jermaine was able to take Eller’s police baton and then proceeded to strike him over the head somewhere between six and 12 times.

According to a report, that’s when a witness nearby charged up with his weapon drawn and told Jermaine he would shoot him if he did not stop hitting Eller. That heroic witness has not been identified.

Of course, their mother told KOCO her twins are innocent.
