ALTON, Texas — A pregnant woman helped break up a scuffle between an Alton police officer and a group of teenagers who attacked him over the weekend, officials said.

The officer was responding to a disturbance at a home near the intersection of Nixon Avenue and Linares Street when the group allegedly pounced on the officer and began to physically assault him, Alton police Sgt. Mike Luna said.

A pregnant woman ran up to the group and tried to help the officer, who suffered minor injuries from the attack. It was unclear whether the woman knew the suspects.
