This morning, I was out walking the dog at half six when there was a couple who'd obviously been on the drink all night (Must have been a party because everywhere is shut) they were having a right old row and heading in my direction. At first I couldn't make out what they were arguing about, as they got closer, the chap was accusing her of flirting with every bloke with a swinger, I wasn't really expecting what was going to happen next though. As they got about 30m away from me, the guy unleashed a right hander that would drop anyone who wasn't expecting it, a right sucker punch, he then booted her I think in the head near her ear when she went down, he then started to run towards me at speed to get away. When he attacked her, I have to admit the shock rooted me to the spot, I was totally taken aback at the level of violence of what I had just witnessed in those seconds. As this bloke got on his heels 2 thoughts went through my head, 1. Do I stop this bloke and try and detain him or 2. Let him pass and go to this girls aid. For those of you who know me on here, it's certain with a massive prolapsed stoma and linked 24hrs a day to a blood pressure monitor I'm not really in the position for heroics, however something inside me just went and as he came towards me I adopted that familiar stance that I've done many times when a number 7 or 8 have come running at me at full speed, I got low and put my shoulder right into his hip grabbed the back of his legs and lifted him trying to turn him to spear him, unfortunately my technique is not as good as it was so I ended up dropping him side ways. However, he was up and gone within seconds of getting up so I went to help the girl. Fortunately one of the neighbours saw him attack this girl and was already helping her. She was taken away by ambulance and I've just given the plod my account of the assault. When 50 left, my Wife berated me for getting involved in anything other than just helping the stricken girl, but in all honesty, what would you do?
