Geary merchant heroes help cop 

Cops are calling two Geary Boulevard merchants heroes for aiding a police officer who was attacked by a raving madman on Sept. 8.

A bike patrol officer riding on Geary Boulevard near 10th Avenue was jumped by a “deranged” linebacker-sized lunatic, police said.

The man threw a cup of liquid into the officer’s face, then punched him several times before running off, police said. The officer caught up with the suspect but struggled to subdue him.

Then, two local merchants who “disregarded their own personal safety” intervened, restraining the mad dog until backup arrived.

The cops were “appreciative and indebted” of the merchants’ service, police said.
