Passing Citizen Rescued A Cop From Two Thugs Attacking Him

A deputy nearly lost his life when one young couple attacked him. The officer was losing consciousness and just before he blacked out he saw something that was the difference between life and death.


Erie County Deputy Jason Clark was checking out a suspicious car on Wednesday evening in Grand Island, New York. According to WBFO the attackers were 22-years-old Sammy Abdellatif and his 21-yerar-old girlfriend Brittany Ashley-Graser, Brittany was driving her car while Sammy was threatening and yelling at the deputy. After few passes in their car, Clark approached them to arrest Abdellatif, but because he was uncooperative the deputy was forced to arrest him through the window. And from here things took a deadly turn.

“Upon informing him that he was under arrest for his conduct, the individual rolled the window of the vehicle up on the deputy’s hand,” Sherrif Tim Howard stated. “In extracting his hand, the window of the vehicle was broken. The passenger of the vehicle immediately exited the vehicle and attacked the deputy.”

Abdellatif got out of the car and attacked the officer, Ashley-Graser and their pit bull also joined in the attack. She jumped on his back, allowing Abdellatif to place the officer in a chokehold. As Clark was losing consciousness he saw something that changed everything from there. It was Peter O’Brien, a passing citizen, who saw the attack and decided to help the officer.

O’Brien grabbed Abdellatif and forced him away from the officer before he knocked him out unconscious. However, heroic act encouraged the pit bull to attack, biting him on the hand. Luckily, he only got minor injuries.

“Were it not for the actions of Mr. O’Brien, this very easily could have ended with another dead police officer,” stated Acting Erie County District Attorney Michael Flaherty.

Because of O’Brien’s heroic act, Abdellatif and Ashley-Graser were arrested. A second officer arrived, Deputy Nick Coniglio, he approached the couple and placed them in handcuffs. Abdellatif was still acting violent, he kicked the officer and was refusing to walk when he was finally placed in the police car.

Thanks to O’Brien’s heroic act, Deputy Clark was taken to Erie County Medical Center so that he could be treated for his serious injuries, according to Blue Lives Matter. Abdellatif was charged with attempted murder and he is in custody at the Erie County Holding Center. Ashley-Graser was charged with felony assault, obstruction an officer, and resisting arrest and she is at the same holding center.

The couple is scheduled for separate trial in Grand Island Town Court.

Recently police officers have become targets for hatred, attack, and even murder just because the anti-police crowd judges them, not by the content of their character but by the color of their skin or, in some cases, their profession.

    Well I can tell you, I’m not a violent person, but to just target a law enforcement officer definitely is wrong, but I have seen so many cop tell deliberate lies about what the so called perpetrated do when you can see point blank they are lying and they get away with this , this is also wrong , I saw a cop tell his dog to attack a man that was in handcuffs on his knees no threat to anyone there were 6 cops all encouraging this dog to bite this poor man had no shirt on and his arms were a mess , and as soon as they realized they were being taped by a bystander the cop ordered the dog to stop biting, now how do we as citizens know who are good and who are bad. This is just a couple out of millions of bad cops , I’m sorry for the police officer that nearly lost his life but when citizens are being treated like this on a daily basis they are going to retaliate. No matter who it is period.

      I agree. Thanks to Mr. O’Brien who risked his life to help the officer. I don’t care who you are or what you think of police officers, you are wrong to try to kill them. Keep that in mind when you NEED a police officer. That’s when your opinion will change in a nano second.
