Good Samaritans come to the aid of two female Tampa cops

The heroic moment a transit worker jumped in to help two female police officers when they were allegedly attacked by a suspect who tried to steal their weapons was caught on surveillance footage.

Tampa Bay police officers were dispatched to the transit center after Charles Kee allegedly headbutted a security officer who asked him to leave since he was in violation of a year-long trespassing order on April 26.

The two female officers who responded were in the process of trying to apprehend Kee, 26, and struggled to handcuff him.

Video of the incident shows the man punching one of the officers in the face as he also tried to grab her gun, police say. 'You could see through the window his hand on the gun,' Carl Baer, a cab driver who witnessed the incident told media outlets.
