LAKEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy who was badly beaten by a suspect has recovered enough to thank a bystander who helped him.

The Long Beach Press-Telegram reported Thursday that Deputy Brandon Love has posted a note of thanks on the Lakewood sheriff's station Facebook page and also recorded a video for the good Samaritan.

Sheriff's officials declined to release the bystander's name or any identifying information because the investigation is ongoing.

Love responded to a domestic violence call Aug 15. at a Lakewood mall.

Authorities say that as Love walked suspect 21-year-old Frankie Estrada out of the mall, Estrada knocked him to the ground and began stomping on his head and neck.

The bystander intervened long enough for other deputies to reach the scene.
