SHAWNEE, KS (KCTV) -
A Shawnee man heard a badly beaten neighbor's cry for help and then helped catch one of the people arrested for the attack.
All the neighbors in the 5400 block of Flint Street said the victim is a great guy, a good neighbor and a friend, and it didn't surprise them to hear someone went above and beyond to help him.
"I hope someone would do the same for me. It was just bad what they did to him. Real bad," Billy Kilgore said.
Kilgore's dog woke him up early Wednesday morning. He said he heard his neighbor, 69-year-old Dennis W. Davey, yelling for help.
"Unrecognizable. He was beat so bad he was unrecognizable," Kilgore said.
Police said Davey's 22-year-old stepdaughter, her 23-year-old friend and his 24-year-old sister beat Davey inside his Shawnee home. Davey has blunt-force head trauma and is in intensive care. His family said he is showing signs of improvement.
"The stepfather (Davey) was probably asleep when he was attacked or surprised when he was attacked, so how long they were actually in the residence before we were called, we're not sure. But after the first initial attack there was a large fight inside," Capt. Doug Orbin said.
Kilgore saw one of the suspects running from the scene. He and his dog chased her down and caught her about a block away. A police K-9 unit caught the other two suspects.
"I didn't think, I just acted. I saw someone who was hurt and he was a neighbor and a friend, and I would hope someone would do that for me," Kilgore said.
Kilgore says the stepdaughter was kicked out after Davey caught her stealing from him. One of the suspects has a history of drug abuse and pleaded guilty to distribution of drugs.
Now all three suspects are facing charges of premeditated attempted first-degree murder.
"That she would do this to someone who tried to help her because she was in a lot of trouble before for stealing from another grandmother and he opened his door to her," Kilgore said.
Kilgore said Davey is his hero for managing to make it out of the house to call for help. Davey was able to talk to the officers before being transported to the hospital.
All three suspects were taken to the Johnson County Jail. Nicole Rose Carter, Adam Ryan Hersh and Whitney Terrice Hersh are all charged with attempted first-degree murder. They will appear in court on Friday.
