Update: Man who stopped attack couldn't just stand by, watch

UPDATE: ONE of the men who came to the rescue of Senior Constable Brown yesterday afternoon says he doesn't want any public recognition and his heroic acts were quite normal.

"Anyone would do it. You can't let that go," he said. 

The man was walking home in Calliope after kicking the footy with his son when he saw the drama unfolding.

He saw Snr Cst Brown with a juvenile on his back; he was hitting him while the policeman attempted to arrest another man.

The man asked another woman to look after his son as he went to help out. 

"It wasn't pretty so I went and got (the juvenile) off his back," he said. 

"Another fella was there and he stopped the man from running away."

He said children playing in the park nearby shouldn't have to witness things like that. 

"I guess we set a better example helping out but you can't let that sort of thing go on," he said. 

"I had no qualms about doing it because (Snr Cst Brown) is there protecting us."

EARLIER: TWO Calliope men helped police recapture an 18-year-old on Morris Ave yesterday.

At 4pm police intercepted a speeding motorist at Calliope in relation to a traffic offence.

Police arrested the 18-year-old Gladstone man --- but while they were arresting him, Senior Constable Brown was struck in the side of the head by a young person who was with the man.

The man managed to escape police custody into the nearby park while police restrained the youngster.

The man was grabbed by the two local men and brought back to the police.

Police said they were grateful for the assistance of the two Calliope men.

Queensland Ambulance Service were called to check on the welfare of all involved, during which time, the juvenile attempted to run off but was caught by police after another short struggle.

Both will face court on several charges.
