White Rock police thank Good Samaritan

White Rock RCMP is looking to thank a Good Samaritan who stopped to lend a hand Saturday when an officer had difficulty subduing a distressed man.

Police called to the corner of Pacific Avenue and Parker Street July 2 arrived to find a man in apparent medical distress. He was incoherent and seemed not to understand directions given by the lone female officer, Const. Janelle Shoihet said.

A Good Samaritan who was in the area stopped to assist until police backup arrived, but left before the officers could thank him, she said.

In a news release posted online Monday, the officers had a message for the kind stranger:

“We greatly appreciate you taking the time to assist. It is people like you who make working in White Rock a pleasure.”
