Upon witnessing a man yelling at a woman and pushing her into a van,
a passerby tried to be a Good Samaritan. Police say he asked the
woman if she was okay and told her she didn't have to get into the
man's vehicle. While stopped at a traffic light moments later, the
van's driver confronted the man. Both men exited their vehicles, and
the van's driver knocked the Good Samaritan to the ground. Two
women, including the woman the victim tried to help, exited the van
and began stomping on him. A passing motorist witnessed the scene
and quickly stopped. He drew a firearm and ordered the three
suspects to halt the beating. Police received reports of a man
holding people at gunpoint, but quickly determined he had a
concealed carry permit and arrested the three suspects.
