VIDEO: Female Medical Assistant Jumps In Fight To Save Cop Beaten Unconscious

Two Portage police officers were attacked as they attempted to arrest two people early Monday morning.

Portage, WI – A Wisconsin couple were arrested on Monday morning, after they attacked two Portage police officers, and knocked one unconscious with a brutal kick to the head (video below).

The incident began at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Apr. 15, when the Portage Police Department was called to the Ridge Motor Inn for reports that a man was driving recklessly in the motel parking lot, and had confronted guests in the area, WISC reported.

Officers spoke with the motel clerk, 21-year-old Olivia Boomsma, who claimed that the erratic driver was her ex-boyfriend.

Police later learned that Boomsma had provided them with false information, and that the suspect was actually 21-year-old Jacob Hellenbrand-Bell.

In the early morning hours of Monday morning, a Portage police officer spotted a truck in a convenience store parking lot that matched the description from the motel.

Officer Brian Loewenhagen made contact with the driver, Hellenbrand-Bell, who was in the company of Boomsma.

Officer Loewenhagen told Boomsma to wait in the truck, then proceeded to place Hellenbrand-Bell under arrest for violation of his parole conditions.

As the officer began handcuffing the suspect, Boomsma moved in, and punched Officer Loewenhagen in his left eye. He tried to push her away, as she delivered several more blows.

“What are you going to do? F*****g shoot me?” she asked the officer, according to WISC.

As the altercation unfolded, PPD Sergeant Eric Walters arrived at the scene to assist his fellow officer, dashcam footage showed.

Sgt. Walters rushed into the fight, and grabbed Boomsma. Both the sergeant and the woman fell to the ground at the feet of Hellenbrand-Bell and Officer Loewenhagen.

As the sergeant continued to struggle with the combative woman, Hellenbrand-Bell suddenly delivered a swift kick to the side of Sgt. Walters’ head, immediately knocking him unconscious for over two minutes.

Boomsma then jumped up, and resumed her attack on Officer Loewenhagen.

Vanessa Guerra, an off-duty medical assistant from a local hospital, witnessed the fight, and ran to help the unconscious sergeant.

"It happened so fast but all I really just remember is seeing an officer down and just seeing two people that needed help," Guerra told WISC.

While she tended to the sergeant, Guerra noticed Boomsma fighting with Officer Loewenhagen again.

“I have a knife in my pocket,” the combative woman threatened. “I will f*****g kill you! You don’t deserve to be a cop. You deserve to die!”

“I will punch you, too, b***h!” Boomsma told Guerra.

Concerned for the officers’ safety, Guerra grabbed Boomsma, and restrained her until Sgt. Walters was able to regain consciousness, WISC reported.

"For her to take that next step is awesome and she deserves all the recognition she can get," PPD Chief Ken Manthey told WISC.

Although Sgt. Walters has no recollection of the events that unfolded, he and Officer Loewenhagen managed to secure both assailants, who continued to fight as they were placed into the officers’ patrol vehicles.

Boomsma was charged with battery to a law enforcement officer, obstructing, threatening an officer, disorderly conduct, and resisting an officer.

Hellenbrand-Bell was charged with felony bail jumping, disorderly conduct, resisting an officer, and battery to a law enforcement officer.

Both appeared in Columbia County Circuit Court on Wednesday afternoon.

"When you kick somebody in the head ... you are taking a significant risk, and I am happy we're all here not looking at a brain damaged or deceased law enforcement officer," Judge Alan White said at the hearing.

"Sometimes it's a 'he said, she said' type of thing,” White continued. “We don't have that here. Ms. Boomsma threatened or taunted the officer from what I can tell.”

Hellenbrand-Bell was already on probation at the time of the attack, following an Apr. 6 conviction for hitting a motorcyclist at nearly 100 miles per hour in 2017. He was also charged with repeat marijuana use offenses, causing injury while operating a vehicle under the influence, and two counts of bail jumping at the time of the earlier incident.

The couple’s next court appearance was scheduled for Apr. 26.

In the meantime, Hellenbrand-Bell was being held on a $75,000 cash bond, while Boomsma was given a $50,000 cash bond.

"I'm not going to put up with this," White said at the hearing. "The individuals are dangerous, and the public needs protection from them."

that's not bail..it means they have to have all the money in cash up front..a bondsman might pay the money for them but they still have to have all the money up front first and then pay the bondsman a fee for paying it for them..from what I've been able to find on the subject, the only reason they would get a bondsman to pay for them would be so the courts can't keep the money after the trial to put toward court costs and penalties. Usually when they have to post cash the courts apply it toward the fines but if they get a third party to post it for them they have a better chance of getting it back..

that's $75,000.00 cash, a bail bondsman is about 10 times that amount to bail. who's going to jeopardize their $750,000, [3/4 of a million] to bail his scum.

God bless that citizen, but the police were way too gentle with these worthless human debris. I was trying to figure out when the chick would get knocked out and the male taken down really hard and hurt badly?
