A courageous citizen assisted in the arrest of a violent abuser in Tulsa, Oklahoma. On Monday, Robert Wayne Grayson was arrested by Tulsa County Sheriff’s deputies after a Good Samaritan called 911 to alert authorities of a woman being beaten by Grayson in a moving car.
The witness had noticed Grayson’s suspicious behavior, from the woman in the car wearing a seat belt in the passenger seat and the man repeatedly looking in the rear-view mirror at the witness, and was prepared to take action if necessary. The Good Samaritan stayed on the line with the 911 dispatcher, providing their location and the location of the moving car.
The next scene became even more alive when the car came to a red light and the passenger attempted to jump out of the car. As Grayson gunned the car forward, he threw the woman from the passenger seat. Despite this danger, the witness continued to follow the car as it made its way back to Grayson’s apartment complex.
The courageous citizen arrived at the scene just in time to see Grayson’s arrest, and a meth pipe was allegedly found in his pocket. Casey Roebuck, a spokesperson for the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, praised the Good Samaritan’s bravery and selflessness, saying, “This is Oklahoma, there are good people everywhere and when good people see what’s happening and get involved, they will help put away perpetrators.”
Grayson was charged with kidnapping, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, threatening a violent act and possession of drug paraphernalia.
