A valet saved the day.
Terrifying video shows an assailant tackling a woman on a Los Angeles street, but he is confronted by a good Samaritan as he tried to drag her away.
The two men faced off against each other briefly and seemed poised to fight before the suspect ran off.
Cops say the perpetrator grabbed the woman’s phone and dragged her into an ally. They released video of the attack in hopes of tracking the suspect down.
“This person was so distracted with her phone she did not see the suspect run up on her,” the LAPD said in a tweet on Tuesday. “She was lucky. Always be aware of your surroundings.”
The valet appeared to save the woman from possible serious injury, but cops cautioned witnesses of a crime to act smart.
“Do not try to confront any suspects because you never know whether those suspects are armed with a weapon or not,” Officer Mike Lopez of the LAPD told ABC 7.
