Man Thanked For Saving South Yorkshire Police Officer's Life
South Yorkshire Police officers have thanked a member of public who helped to save the life of a police officer when she was attacked in Gleadless.
Simon Ellis was invited to Woodseats Police Station to meet grateful members of PC Lisa Bates’ team.
Mr Ellis was given an update on PC Bates’ recovery, spoke to several of her colleagues and was presented with a card and small gift.
Police Sergeant Peter Heginbotham said:
"Police officers are trained to run towards danger when others are running away.
Simon Ellis confronted danger on that night and we will always be grateful to him for his efforts.
It was thanks to his willingness to come forward that Lisa was not killed.”
The Force will continue to support Simon in the weeks and months ahead.
PS Heginbotham added:
"We remain thankful for the continued support and good wishes shown by the wider community and we look forward to continuing to work hard for a safer Sheffield.”
PC Bates is currently out of hospital and recovering well at home with family and friends.
