An Omaha man trying to be a Good Samaritan ended up in the hospital Wednesday night. Police say Brian Cimmiyotti saw a fight brewing between two women around 6 pm near 39th and Vernon Streets. While trying to calm tempers and prevent a fight, police say Cimmiyotti was intentionally hit by a silver colored SUV.
Witnesses say Cimmiyotti landed in the street and both the women repeatedly punched and kicked him. The two females then got inside that SUV and left the area.
Cimmiyotti suffered non-life threatening injuries.
