Good Samaritans beaten after defending women from harassment

Two Good Samaritans were beaten and one was knocked out by a group of thugs who were reportedly harassing young women in the Mid-Market Street area Saturday, police said.

A large group of young men, possibly ranging in age from 18 to 25, were reportedly harassing a group of young women near Cyril Magnin and Eddy streets about 2:10 a.m. when two young men, ages 25 and 22, tried to intervene.

The 25-year-old victim was reportedly punched and kicked multiple times and even lost consciousness, police said. The younger victim only sustained minor facial injuries.

The thugs fled after the beating and no arrests were made.

The 25-year-old victim was hospitalized for his injuries, which were not life-threatening. The younger victim was treated at the scene.
