The shirtless 31-year-old suspect had just forced his way out of a British police patrol car and shoved two female officers aside in a bid to evade arrest, when 16-year-old Kiya Ingham chased him down with a flying tackling. Footage shows the teen kick boxer drop his bag and launch himself at the older man, grabbing him around the neck and pulling him to the ground.
The two officers were then able to detain the man until police support arrived. Kiya has now been awarded a top bravery award for his heroics, on a busy road in East Sussex on June 10, the MailOnline reports.
The suspect had been arrested over a domestic violence incident and has since been convicted to 100 hours of community service after pleading guilty to two counts of assaulting a police officer.
