Four men who witnessed a man grab a woman in Sanchong District, New Taipei City, went to her assistance and suppressed the man until police arrived, Friday evening, December 14.
At around 11:00pm, Ms Chiang, 20, had finished work at a hairdressing salon and was walking home on Zhengbei Road when a stranger approached her and put his arm around her shoulders. Chiang resisted and the man grabbed her in a headlock. Chiang managed to separate herself twice, but the man repeatedly chased her and grabbed her in a headlock again.
Video footage of the incident shows a man stumbling across the scuffling pair and taking out his cellphone to call the police. Then a group of four men approach from the road and tried to reason with the man to let the woman go.
