Police Officer Robbed, Assaulted in Downtown Memphis

May 25, 2015  | 

A Memphis police officer who attempted to intervene when he saw a man roughly forcing a woman into a car was robbed and beaten in Downtown Memphis early Sunday morning, according to police.

Tavin Davis said he was at Third and Beale Street around 5 a.m. Sunday when he saw a woman being assaulted and shoved toward a Kia Sorrento with Illinois tags. Davis pulled out his badge and ordered the man to stop and sit on the curb, which he did.

That’s when two different men jumped out of the Sorrento and attacked Davis, punching, stomping and kicking him to the ground. The two men grabbed a $650 Michael Kors wristwatch from Davis, the Commercial Appeal reports.

When uniformed officers arrived, the two men took off running but were soon taken into custody — though not before elbowing and kicking the uniformed officers, too.

Philip Boyd, 34, and Christopher Logan, 27, were arrested and charged with robbery and evading arrest. Boyd was also charged with assault with bodily harm.

The broadcast is at www
localmemphis dot com_ which you can find if you google the names of the persons arrested.

It is not too hard to put together the elements that led to this encounter. The media needs to stop edifying these criminals, they are using it for all they can get out of it.

It is so bad, that this very site would not allow my post, when I actually included the link. Sheesh.

Not arm chair quarterbacking here, but I sure hope the officer was armed when he took this upon himself. If he was I wonder why someone was not shot? Why don't we ever hear the race of suspects and cops unless the "victim" is the person of color?

I am surprised that the feds don't want to investigate the officer because he was wearing a nice wrist watch. How dare he tempt the poor thugs with that. That might have bought them a couple of hits of nasty crap so that they could crawl back to their den.
