VIDEO: California Man Beat Officer After Luring Him From Patrol Car

A Sacramento, CA, Police officer is recovering after investigators say he was ambushed outside a hospital. Police have arrested two men in the case, reports CBS Sacramento.

Juan Gomez, 21, is accused of ambushing the officer and brutally beating him for no other reason than the officer's profession.

Sacramento police say it happened early Monday morning when Gomez knocked on the officer's patrol car window and lured the officer out.

"The man had told the officer that there was someone in the area with a gun. He immediately and violently attacked the officer," said Sacramento Police spokesman Doug Morse.

The officer, taken by surprise, was knocked to the ground.

"The attack continued when that individual actually jumped on that officer and continued to strike him in the face," Morse said.

While the attack was happening, police say Jamaral Lee, 35, recorded the attack and encouraged Gomez. Eventually security guards and bystanders noticed what was happening, and helped stop the attack. Both Gomez and Lee were placed under arrest while the officer rushed into the hospital.

Gomez faces a number of felony charges for allegedly beating that officer.

Lee faces a felony charge of advocacy of killing a peace officer.

Well now, these two geniuses need to be housed in a prison for a long time with no chance of parole until they are very old. Imagine if they did this to a peace officer...what have they done to the general public that we don't know about!?!

Seems to me attempted murder of a Peace Officer and conpsiracy to commit such are appropriate charges for those two loser cowards

These thugs need 10 times what the officer got. These two need to be taken outside this country and dropped off. We need to start putting thugs like this in the police vehicle lot at shift change. Law enforcement needs to stop this kind of attack, at any cost.

I hope that Officer recovers and returns to the Job. And I also hope these two bottom feeders get put away for a long damn time. Unfortunately, it being CA they'll get a slap on the wrist and turned loose again. Blues, Stay Safe.
