DETROIT – O’Neil Colley started recording before he jumped in to help when he saw a dog attacking a mail carrier last month on Detroit’s west side.
Colley was on Ardmore Street near Eight Mile Road when he saw the vicious attack and people trying to stop the animal.
One person tried to intervene with a broom, while Colley used a trash can, but the attack continued.
“I thought that [the garbage can] could chase him away real quick but he had a real good grip on the guy,” Colley said.
Eventually, Colley tapped the dog on the head with a hammer while a neighbor was able to get hold of the dog and get it off the mail carrier.
