PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A UPS employee helped a Phoenix police officer subdue a suspect who was resisting arrest. 

UPS employee Adam Faz said he typically delivers packages in the area near 25th Street and Cactus Road, but what he saw was unlike any other day on the job. 

After delivering more than 150 packages a day for the past 12 and a half years, Wednesday was a first for Faz.

"I came around the corner and saw the police officer needed help," said Faz.

Phoenix police tell us Wednesday around 4 p.m., an officer was trying to arrest burglary suspect, Cody Cherry-Cisco, near 25th Street and Cactus Road. The officer wasn't able to subdue Cherry-Cisco until Faz stepped in. 

"He was chasing him, and then they got on the ground a little bit, and the cop looked up at me, and I asked if he needed help, and before I could even get it out, he said, 'Yeah, help me out,'" Faz said.

He said he didn't hesitate when he saw the look on the officer's face. 

"I just kind of listened to him and put my weight on top of his back with my knee and the cop said grab his other arm," Faz said.

"Luckily, we were able to get handcuffs on him," Faz said.

He said aside from being a little shaken up, he walked away unharmed. 

"He swung at me a couple of times, but he missed, he was yelling at us, cussing at us and stuff," Faz said. "The heroes are the cops. People don't realize that's what they every single day. I just deliver packages."

Cherry-Cisco is currently in jail for burglary and resisting arrest, among other charges. The person who police said was with him, Daniel Ayala, is also in jail on burglary and drug charges.
