LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Shepherdsville Police say they are looking for two good Samaritans authorities say helped an officer subdue a suspect under arrest.

Ryan Hayes, 24, was arrested on Saturday, according to a post made Wednesday on the Shepherdsville Police Facebook Page.

Police say officers went to the Awesome Flea Market on a call that a man was exposing himself.

Authorities say when police arrived, an officer found Hayes inside. Officials say Hayes became disorderly and would not follow police instructions.

According to police, Hayes resisted arrest, after which he and an officer ended up on the ground. Officials say the officer was not able to call for back up because his radio would not work inside the building.

Shepherdsville Police say two bystanders saw the officer needed help and assisted the officer in getting Hayes under control.

Hayes is charged with second-degree disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Police say Hayes was also served with a warrant out of Nelson County for non-payment of fines.

The officer was able to thank the men for their help, but left before police could get their names.

"They showed us again what an incredible community we serve," Shepherdsville Police said in the Facebook post. "These men didn't keep walking or pick-up their cell phones to record the struggle. They made a decision to get involved. And for that, we are grateful."

Shepherdsville Police would like to thank the men for helping the officer. Anyone with information about the men's identities is asked to send a private Facebook message to Shepherdsville Police.
