Two citizens intervened to help a Stockton (Calif.) Police officer struggling with a gang member who had grabbed his service pistol.

Joseph Locaso spotted the officer struggling with Phyrun Dok, 28, in the parking lot of Albierto's Restaurant. When Locaso saw Dok grab the officer's gun, he jumped on him and pulled his arm off the gun.

"We're very fortunate a citizen saw what was going on and made the decision to get involved, because if that suspect was able to unholster that gun, we don't know what could've happened," Officer Joe Silva told News 10.
