As a close friend of a police officer, my heart goes out to all you heroes out there.

But sometimes, heroes need help too. Iron Man didn’t kill Thanos alone.

In a video uploaded on Singapore News, a Facebook page, a passer-by helped the police tackle down a man who was resisting arrest.

Passer-by Witnesses Scene With Police 

The passer-by who helped the police with the arrest was initially observing two police officers who were following a suspect.

They appeared to be trying to grab the suspect’s attention but was pushed away by him.

After a few more attempts, the attempted suspect run away from the two police officers.

Two more police officers came in from the back when he became more aggressive and shouted in Chinese “What is this? I want to go to the toilet now!”

Passer-By Jumps In To Help Police 

Seeing that the four police officers were unable to hold down the suspect, the passer-by who had been observing the scene since the start came in.


He grabbed the suspect by the head with both hands and wrestled him down in one swift movement.

In 2017, there was also a similar case where three police officers were trying to restrain an uncontrollable suspect when the bystanders came to their aid.
