Incident was : One time

Perpetrator was a Stranger and aged 20-30

Experience:

This incident occurred late at night outside a bar in Trichy about 5 years ago.

After a few drinks, I was heading to the bus stop when I saw a woman in her early 20s being harassed by two men(presumably drunk). One of the men was calling on the phone for his mates to arrive to the spot. Fearing the worst, I decided to confront the pair. I was pushed to the ground and a scuffle broke out. In the melee, the woman managed to run away to safety. Somehow, I knocked one of them out. But the other chap disappeared in the mean time.

The noise attracted the attention of an off-duty policeman. He gave me a moralising lecture on why I shouldn’t hang out late at night drinking and that I shouldn’t be indulging in such behaviour as a student.

To this day I dread to think of the consequences had I not interfered. Also, it was a sad realisation that the sociopathic, ill-educated, emotionally retarded criminal scum have always found a welcoming home in the police forces.
