A group of inmates at a jail in Phoenix Arizona were able to rush to the rescue a female guard that was being attacked by a fellow prisoner.

Detention officer Rachel Harris was about to conduct a search on the cell of inmate Bobby Ruiz, when she had him leave his cell. As she entered the cell, he tackled her from behind and bit off part of her right ear.

In the surveillance video, you can see the group of the inmates she guards, come running to her defense.
