Whilst on routine patrol, a dog handler from Mersey Police Dogs, came across what appeared to be a fight in the street.
PD ‘Yannick’ and handler quickly ran over to the scene to find out what was going on.
It immediately became apparent that a female had been seriously assaulted in the street and that members of the public had detained her cowardly attacker.
As one group of good samaritans kept hold of the coward, another group gave his victim first aid as they waited for the emergency services.
The individual who had allegedly attacked the woman continued to try and run away from his despicable crime, but PD ‘Yannick’ made sure that he did not go anywhere.
One male was arrested at the scene.
Thankfully, none of the good samaritans were injured. Featured image credit: MerPolDogs / Twitter.
