CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Dramatic security footage shows citizens stepping in to help an officer who was being attacked in a movie theater.

Managers at the Marcus Chesterfield Cinema asked for help removing a patron who was being noisy and disruptive, and when the officer showed up, the man refused to leave.

When the officers tried to remove him from the theater, the man attacked him.

Other patrons saw the assault and stepped in to stop the attack.

The officer was uninjured, but the police department extended thanks to the Good Samaritan’s for their efforts.
