Maurice Osborne - a Good Samaritan in Brooklyn, New York

During the morning of August 12, 2015, a 28 year old unnamed woman was riding in the rear car of a New York City subway train.

It is unclear how many other passengers were in the car along with the woman.  However, after 11:00 a.m., a man started masturbating in front of the woman. 

The subway train came to a stop in the Park Slope neighborhood in northwest Brooklyn, the doors opened and the woman ran out to the platform. The masturbating man followed and was attempting to rape the woman, right there in public.

Maurice Osborne, who was one car over, heard the woman screaming and stepped onto the platform. 

He punched and headbutted the suspect, Alvaro Denica, age 40, and dragged him by the shirt two blocks to the local police precinct. The crying female victim followed Maurice to the police station and thanked him for helping her. 

Maurice sustained a gash above his eye from fighting with the suspect. 

The Good Samaritan comes to the
aid of strangers in distress.
Alvaro Denica was booked on multiple charges including sexual assault and public lewdness.

Maurice said that he came to the woman's aid because: "When you see something like that you're supposed to help."

Maurice's mother is very proud of her son's actions. She stated that Maurice has always been a helpful person. 

Maurice is currently living at a local shelter and is in training as a medical assistant. He is trying to get his own life on track.

Maurice Osborne is a Good Samaritan.

God bless him and all who come to the aid of strangers. Amen.
