Jessie Pugh - a Good Samaritan in Orlando, Florida

Jessie Pugh
On April 5, 2016, after 9:00 p.m., Kirsten Telan and her daughter were shopping at a drug store in the College Park district of Orlando, Florida. 

As they were loading bags into their Land Rover, a man approached them screaming that he loved them and tried to steal the vehicle. When the women resisted, he started punching and fighting. 

The daughter called out for help.

Jessie Pugh, age 42, and his wife were also shopping in the vicinity and noticed the confrontation. Jessie intervened and pulled the man out of the vehicle. 

The attacker, Russell Ullom, age 53, was arrested shortly after the incident.  He is charged with carjacking and assault. 

Kirsten Telan is extremely grateful to Jessie Pugh for his help in her time of need. She encourages everyone to step up when you see others in trouble. 

God bless Jessie Pugh and his wife. They are Good Samaritans. Amen.  

God bless all who come to the aid of strangers in distress. Amen.
