Good Samaritans Help Texas Detective Take Down Suspect

A bystander came to the assistance of a Texas police officer recently after witnessing the officer struggling to restrain a suspect.

The incident occurred after Plano, TX Detective Jon Hoffman witnessed a man run out of a local 7-11 convenience store carrying what looked like a donation jar. The detective confronted the suspect and a struggle ensued. 

That's when Andre Harvey pulled out his phone to start recording.

But after Detective Hoffman yelled for help Harvey put the phone down and, along with another good samaritan, ran to assist the officer. 

Together they were able to take control of suspect Majd D. Qewar, who was ultimately arrested and charged with resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance.
