OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police honored a nursing student for her actions last month to help an officer who had been severely beaten at a gasoline station.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1kHtQaR ) police gave Tiffany Joseph a plaque and check for $1,625 raised through donations to police officers associations.

Police Chief Todd Schmaderer says Joseph’s actions “represent everything that is good about our community,” when she helped officer Tom Arrance on Oct. 7.

Witnesses say Arrance was surprised by a man who hit him so hard, it broke the officer’s nose, cheekbone and the bones around his eye. Joseph, a part-time nursing student, tried to stop the bleeding and stayed with Arrance.

Joseph met Arrance at the ceremony and expressed relief he was OK.

Police have charged a man with the beating.
