EL CAJON, Calif. — An officer who was brutally attacked by a felon Monday received a special visitor Wednesday.
Chopper the Bike Dog, whose mission is to “bring smiles, joy, love and happiness to all,” visited the Officer Sioson in the hospital to show him some extra love and thank him for his service.
“Today I made a special trip over and spent some time comforting this police officer, sharing my love and yes giving him lots of #ChopperKisses,” the Facebook post reads. “Please join me in supporting this officer, keeping him in your prayers for a full recovery. Let's hope and pray that the man arrested for this attack stays behind bars this time. No police officer deserves this!”
Iesha Booker helped save the officer, a 28-year veteran, during the attack when she repeatedly yelled “officer down” into his walkie talkie. The El Cajon Police Officers’ Association has established a GoFundMe account for Booker, a mother of seven who is living in her vehicle.
The suspect, Daniel Moses Cook, was taken into custody shortly after the attack and has been charged with assault on a police officer, resisting a police officer with force, robbery, possession of methamphetamine and being under the influence of meth. He also faces added allegations of causing bodily injury to the officer.
