An off-duty California Highway Patrol officer then intervened to help the woman and the group then started violently attacking him.
The youth beat the out of service officer several times and choked him unconscious.
The out of service officer later regained consciousness and drove himself to the hospital after the attack, Emeryville Police Department told ABC7.
The off-duty officer said he was coming in to help the woman while she was being pushed and was afraid she would be seriously injured
The officer suffered a concussion, a broken finger, and bruises as a result of the incident
A guard can be knocked down in the video while trying to respond to the aggressive group.
The officer, who only wanted to be identified as Greg P, said he was extremely anxious during the trial.
He told KVTU: & # 39; It was a melee. It was chaotic. It was really a scary situation. It should never have come that far.
The off-duty officer, who identified himself as Greg B, said he was walking to the group because they threatened the woman

Then another male teenager is beaten him while he walks away until he is surrounded and one of the gang starts beating him again.
& # 39; But I know that when I release it, it will swing at me. And I let him go. I push him and yes, he turns around and waves at me, & Greg Greg explained.
& # 39; I am going backwards and then one of his friends came after me and slapped me in the back of my head. & # 39;

The officer, a former prison officer in the San Quentin prison, said, "I was exhausted and mentally exhausted," he said.
His girlfriend later told the mall's security that he was an out of service officer when they tried to help him.
& # 39; There was a lot of restraint that needed to be practiced. And I had to do my best to stay the moment & # 39 ;, he remembered.

He claimed it was the third time he was trying to help someone who was in danger in the area.
