SPOKANE -- Spokane Fire officials released a 911 call made by a Good Samaritan who chased down an assault suspect and led police to him.

Joshua Gahl was at work when he head two screams for help September 13. He found a woman bleeding badly from the back of her head and cheek.

“When I saw her, she had blood running down the back of her head and she was holding it. I asked her if she was all right, and she pointed down the trail to this guy and said he just attacked me,” Gahl said.

Gahl took off after the suspect, Avondre Graham, and chased him right into the Spokane River.  Spokane police nabbed Graham near Sharp and Madelia.

Spokane Fire officials had record of the 911 call because the call initially came in as a river rescue.
