EVESHAM TOWNSHIP, N.J. — A New Jersey officer is being honored for saving three lives and helping arrest a man for attempted murder, all within two weeks.
Officer Brian Strockbine worked with Evesham Township Police for 11 years.
On March 8, he arrived at a home on Condord Road to find an unresponsive woman who had no pulse and wasn’t breathing, police said.
Strockbine performed CPR for three minutes when the victim opened her eyes and began breathing, then stayed with her until she could be treated by EMS, police said. Upon treatment in an ambulance, she regained consciousness and led officers to arrest her husband.
The victim’s husband was charged with criminal attempt at homicide, aggravated assault, and evidence tampering, police said.
A week later, Strockbine responded to another woman who wasn’t breathing on Knox Boulevard. He began CPR and was able to stabilize her, police said.
On March 12, Strockbine went to investigate a crash at the intersection of Route 73 and Centre Blvd. He noticed the inside of the car was filled with smoke and about to catch fire, police said.
He broke the passenger’s side window and carried the victim, who was unconscious and having a diabetic attack, to safety. The victim was taken to the hospital, where he survived his injuries.
