Brody Zyzniewski - a Good Samaritan in Longview, Washington

Brody Zyzniewski
On November 18, 2015, at about 6:30 p.m., Brody Zyzniewski, age 18, was driving by Lake Sacajawea Park in Longview, Washington. 

He heard a man and woman arguing. The man was yelling at the woman and pushing and pulling at her. 

Brody stopped to see if he could help out somehow. 

The woman was crying and was really upset. The man was ragging on her and treating her abusively. 

Brody told the man to leave the woman alone and to leave the area. 

The aggressive man then pulled out a knife.  Brody told the woman to run away. 

Brody and the man got into a fight and Brody threw a punch.  It was during this confrontation that the man stabbed Brody twice in the arm. 

Both the man and the woman fled the scene.  Brody went to a local hospital and was stitched up. His injuries were not life-threatening. 

The Good Samaritan reaches
out to strangers in distress.
The man was a dark-skinned African American man in his late 20’s, over 6’ tall, with short hair and no facial hair.

If you have any information about this incident, you are urged to call the police tip line at 360-442-5929.

The Police do not recommend that citizens intervene in domestic disputes. They recommend that you call the Police instead. Tempers really flare during arguments between couples and everything can go south in an instant, thereby endangering the life of the person interceding. 

However, Brody Zyzniewski is a Good Samaritan. 

He stepped up to help a woman in distress and was wounded while doing so. 

God bless Brody and all who come to the aid of strangers. Amen.
