Asha Davis, the mother of a 10-year-old son, worked at Ochsner Medical Center and was enrolled in a nursing program at Baton Rouge Community College, her brother Kenneth Davis said.
Bennett was not armed, but the man was reaching for Aime's holstered gun when Williams-Tillman began to assist the officer, taking the assailant's hand off the weapon and jumping on his back, said Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie. After Bennett got out of the vehicle, the report says he became aggressive with the officer. I'm just so happy, lost of words. "I did what God needed me to do", Williams-Tillman told The Advocate.
"I put the window down and I asked, 'You got it?'" she says.
"It was something that went through my soul", Williams-Tillman said, adding that she didn't hesitate before stopping to help. She jumped from her vehicle and onto the back of a 28-year-old male suspect, the chief said. The individual had already wrestled away the officer's baton and hit him in the head when she pounced.
Police say that after Williams-Tillman jumped on the man's back, police backup arrived and the suspect was apprehended after being shot with a stun gun.
"She made a big difference", McKneely reported.

The woman, the officer, and the suspect were all transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
Mr. Bennett's bond was set at $167,000. Bennett was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, disarming a police officer, battery on a police officer, resisting an officer with violence, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia, WGHP reported.
That was when Williams-Tillman came to the rescue. "Ms. Williams-Tillman is a hero and demonstrates the true meaning of loving God and loving your neighbor", Mayor President Sharon Weston-Broome said in a statement.
After the attack, Williams-Tillman said she and Aime hugged each other. "This a true here right here that saved my life", he said.
She became emotional, saying: "I'm just glad that he's here".
