Off‑duty San Quentin officer stops carjacker

While on his way home, San Quentin Correctional Officer Emmanuall Tyler came across the scene of an accident. Pulling over, he turned on his hazards, exited his vehicle and began to offer assistance. That’s when he discovered a carjacker had been attempting to get into other vehicles.

One of his victims said the carjacker was trying to flee the scene. “He nearly killed me,” he told the San Quentin officer. “He’s right there.”

Tyler’s car was about to be stolen. The carjacker had chosen his next target and it happened to be Officer Tyler.

His story was also covered in Corrections One.
