CLEVELAND – The Northeast Ohio Fallen Heroes Fund is rewarding two men, who helped keep a crowd away from an officer during an arrest earlier this month.

The men, Joseph Mosjowsky and George Williams, stayed near Officer Rob Mason as he struggled with the suspect, 18-year-old Trevor Woodson.

Steve Loomis, who is with the Northeast Ohio Fallen Heroes Fund, says each man will receive $200.  He says officers are very grateful the men were willing to help Mason, who did not have another officer backing him up at the time.

A large crowd was forming and Mason can be heard on police radio traffic asking for help during the March 10 arrest at Public Square in Cleveland.

According to reports and RTA video, a fight started on a RTA bus and then spilled out on the sidewalk near Public Square.
