Spokane Citizen Comes To Aid Of Officer In Fight, Prevents Possible Use Of Deadly Force

SPOKANE, Wash. - Early Sunday morning, Spokane Police Officers responded to an address in the E. 400 block of Wabash on a call of fight between a male and a female. The caller reported that the male pushed the female down a flight of stairs.
 
When the first Officer arrived on scene, he encountered the involved male and female out on the street. The female identified the male, who was now walking away, as the suspect in the assault. When the Officer ordered the male to stop, he instead took off running between the houses. 
 
When the suspect reached the alley, he slipped and fell on the ice. The Officer ordered the suspect to remain on the ground, but the suspect instead shouted an explicative at the officer and got up in a fighting stance. When the Officer attempted to take the suspect into custody, he too slipped and fell on the ice. The suspect then dropped down on top of the Officer. 
 
Instead of trying to continue his escape, the suspect grabbed the officer around the neck in a "guillotine" hold and attempted to render the officer unconscious. The officer realized that the suspect would soon have access to his own firearm and realized that he was in a deadly force situation. The officer then heard the suspect yelling to another person to "get him'" (the officer).
 
The involved Officer realized that he needed to use his firearm to protect himself from his imminent death or serious bodily injury. As he was initiating this, he felt the grip around his neck release. The Officer was then able to subdue the suspect with the help of the citizen who came to his aid in releasing him from the suspect's choke hold. Other officers then arrived on scene.
 
Arrested for one count of Assault Second Degree (against the Officer) and one count of Assault Fourth Degree Domestic Violence (for the assault on the female) was Andrew P. Perry, a 27 year old male from Spokane.
 
The Spokane Police Department thanks the citizen who chose to intervene and help the Officer, which averted a potentially tragic situation.
