Good Samaritans help California cop subdue homeless suspect who tried to take deputy's weapon
Three men are being hailed as heroes after they stepped up to help a California police officer who came under attack while trying to arrest a homeless suspect during the weekend.
Dozens of people are living in the woods outside Sanford, but police say they will charge those who leave supplies to help them.
According to Sanford police, anyone caught leaving clothes or donations at homeless camp sites will be charged with littering. Instead, officers suggest donating to a homeless charity.
There is no homeless shelter in Sanford, but the town has recently increased efforts to curb homelessness including offering medical care, garbage disposal and portable toilets.
Littering is a civil offense and subject to a fine of $500 to $1,000 depending on the amount deposited.
