There truly are great people that live on the harbor and this is one of those great stories. "The citizen without any concern for himself grabbed the suspect's hand with the knife and was able to knock the knife out of his hand."
On 12-27-17 about 1557 hours, an Aberdeen Police Officer was dispatched to the 2500 block of Simpson Ave to contact a juvenile with an outstanding warrant. A description of the juvenile was given to the officer and upon arrival in the area, he spotted the suspect in the bus stop. When the suspect saw the police officer, he started to quickly walk away. The Officer pulled around and contacted the suspect in a parking lot. The Officer asked the suspect his name and the suspect was evasive. The Officer asked for ID which he denied at first and then gave the Officer. The ID confirmed he was the suspect with the warrant. The suspect was advised that he was under arrest. The suspected stated "No" and tried to step away from the Officer, who then grabbed the suspect by the arm. The suspect resisted the officer and had to be taken to the ground. The Officer was on top of the suspect, who was actively resisting him, when he observed the suspect take a knife out of his jacket pocket with his other hand. The officer grabbed for the knife before the suspect could open it, but was unable to get the knife away from the suspect.
