— A police department in Washington State wants to find a man involved in a violent scuffle, but not to arrest him.
A stranger helped save the life of an Aberdeen police officer during an arrest, investigators said. The department wants to thank the man for putting his own life in danger.
The officer tried to arrest a juvenile suspect on an outstanding warrant Wednesday afternoon.
When the officer tried to arrest the minor, he said “no” and tried to step away. According to investigators, the officer grabbed the suspect by the arm and the two hit the ground. While the officer was on top of the suspect, the officer saw him take a knife out of his pocket but was unable to wrestle it away, police said.
Cell phone video from a witness shows the violent encounter unfold for roughly three minutes.
Police don’t know what would have happened if a Good Samaritan didn’t run over to help.
Investigators said the man successfully knocked the knife out of the suspect’s hand, without any concern for himself.
The suspect continued to fight the officer and began grabbing items off the officer’s utility belt. With the citizen’s help, the officer was able to regain control and handcuff the suspect.
The Good Samaritan told the officer his name and went to catch the bus. However, the officer couldn’t remember the name. The Aberdeen Police Department wants to thank the citizen for helping the officer in the dangerous situation.

— Two children injured after a crash Tuesday afternoon involving four vehicles and an RTA bus have been on ventilators since the crash, and family said the next few days are critical to their survival.
The siblings, Emmanuel, 6, and Eric, 7, are best friends, according to family. The family said they've been told by doctors that Emmanuel, especially, may not survive.
Both children are being watched for fevers and additional swelling on the brain after they sustained "horrific" injuries.
“It breaks my heart, you know,” said Ryan Morgan, a police officer and the boys' uncle. "They're my nephews. I was there when both of them were born. I deal with this type of stuff all the time, but when it's your own family, it hits you especially hard."
Deputies said they believe the driver of the vehicle the boys were in was intoxicated at the time of the crash. Preliminary indicatations are that the two men in the Cadillac with the children are their father and uncle.
Both men remain hospitalized. Neither they nor the children were wearing safety belts, according to a traffic crash report.
The Cadillac struck an RTA bus, setting off a chain reaction crash that ended in the parking lot of an Auto Zone on North Main Street.

MONROE, Ohio — A vigilant motorist helped authorities find a 4-year-old Ohio boy who was abducted hours earlier from his home in Sandusky and was the subject of a statewide Amber Alert.
Shortly after a statewide Amber Alert was issued that described the vehicle, plate number and provided photos of the Hemchecks to mobile phones, a 911 caller reported spotting a car that matched the description.
“If it wasn’t for the fact that the caller, regular citizen with a cellphone, called in, we probably wouldn’t have been able to locate that car, if not as quick or at all, if we hadn’t had that help from that citizen,” Sgt. Tom Bloomberg of the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Lebanon Post said.
Jennifer Hemcheck was arrested after she was found at 8:30 p.m. riding in the car on southbound I-75 in Monroe in Warren County, police said. Another woman was driving the car, and she, too, was arrested.
Jennifer Hemcheck’s 12-year-old daughter also was in the car and was taken to the Lebanon Post to be reunited with her father, troopers said.
