Joe Donahue reports an incident around 1:30 p.m. on the VFW Parkway at Corey Street:
Woman runs from male companion in car, he chases, assaults her on median. Other motorists detain him [for police].
This kind of thing always reaffirms my faith in humanity, and in my fellow Bostonians.
Thanks to all those that stopped and helped this woman! You did a great deed.
Your link goes to a Google map of the intersection, not to Joe Donahue's report.
Why did my first instinct think that the next paragraph of the story would report the courageous bystanders were then shot by the gun-wielding thug?? Thank gosh, for once, real good happened!
