Man runs over suspect with truck to save woman from assault

A truck driver ran over an unidentified boy to save a lady who was being mugged and assaulted in Buenos Aires. The action was filmed by a security camera and soon went viral on social media.

Two suspects robbed and assaulted a woman, who owns a supermarket in the region. That’s when Rafael Lezcano, 54, heard the cries for help and didn’t think twice: he threw the truck at one of the men, got off immediately and, along with his assistant, 19-year-old Arón Padua, got involved in a hand-to-hand fight with the other suspect. Immediately, pedestrians rushed to help them. The two suspects fled leaving the motorcycle behind.

The battered woman, identified by the name of Kaur Parminder, 51, was rescued, taken to hospital and discharged.

The whole scene was captured by one of the security cameras on the site, and Rafael was called on the streets “sodero justiciero“(or vigilant soda vendor, in Portuguese).

“I did what I did because I heard the screams and saw what was going on. It was the screams and it was like the screams of my mother, who died a few years ago, or my daughter. I had no doubts. I threw the truck to on top of one of the thieves, “the driver said in a statement to the newspaper” Clarín “.
