72-year-old Good Samaritan stops to help young black man with flat tire, almost gets beaten to death

The Gateway Pundit reported May 22 that a 72-year-old Missouri man who stopped on I-35 in Clay County to help a young black man stranded on the side of the highway with a flat tire was nearly beaten to death and is lucky to be alive.

Jason Jones, a horse breeder with Samaritan roots, was driving to Kansas City last week when he saw a pair of black youths stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire.

Jones told the local Fox Virtual Channel 4 that “the youths were kind of cold, like they didn’t think I was going to stop, but I kept asking if they needed help and they kept saying yes. “

Choyce Davis, 19, and a woman, got into Jones’ minivan together to get a spare tire, Jones said. After getting the tire, Jones drove them back to the stranded car, and to his surprise, the pair began beating Jones.

Jones told reporters that “they got the tires, I went back to my minivan, and before I could start the vehicle, all of a sudden, I got hit in the head. “

Jones opened the door of the minivan and tried to escape, but the 19-year-old man grabbed Jones by the neck and repeatedly punched Jones in the face.

Fortunately, a passerby called 911 and Jones was rushed to a local hospital. At the time, Jones was covered in blood, had a brain hemorrhage and a fractured skull, and doctors were unsure if he would survive, but he miraculously did, and after 11 days in the hospital, Jones was released.

Both Davis and the young woman were arrested, but Davis was granted bail.

Jones told reporters, “I always stop to help people, and people are always grateful. At my age, maybe I’ll think twice before I do it again.”
