A San Francisco man is being called a hero after he help thwart a bizzare attack on a woman at the San Francisco BART Station.
That man, Duane Bullard of Antioch, is a BART service worker. Bullard said he saw a naked man about to punch a woman.
The church-going man, Bullard said “I had no choice but to react,” he said.” “I’m thinking of my mom, my sister, my wife and ladies in my church,” he said. “It could have been any ladies I know. I want someone to do the same for my family, so I just did what I should be doing — helping.”
The station was crowded during the May 10 incident. While Bullard got involved, others kept their distance.
“They reacted by pulling out their cameras and filming it, and that’s it,” he said. “That’s all the assistance I can get, but I wasn’t looking for no one else to help.”
BART’s police chief plans to honor Bullard at a later date.
Officials also treated Bullard to dinner and gave him the day off with pay for his courage.
“It’s okay, but I wasn’t looking for that,” Bullard said of being labeled a hero. “I was just doing it because that’s what’s right.”
