A Dallas man has been recognized for stepping in to stop an assault on a city police officer.

Dallas police say officer Billy Taylor was being attacked earlier this month outside a downtown Dallas homeless shelter. Charles Alexander saw the attack and, according to police, grabbed Jackson and pinned him down until officers could arrive to arrest him.

Police on Thursday awarded Alexander a certificate of merit for his efforts.

Alexander received handshakes from Assistant Police Chief Charles Cato and Taylor, who said he could have seriously been injured without Alexander's help.
