Tripoli, 8 July 2014:
A young Libyan has become something of a hero in Scotland after saving a local women from . . .[restrict]an attacker in Glasgow.
When he heard a young woman’s cry for help from inside a park in the city’s West End, Abdul Oun did not wait for someone else to respond. The 27 year-old, from Tripoli, immediately vaulted the fence and ran to the scene, reportedly knocking out the attacker, who had pinned the woman to the ground, with a flying kick to the face.
The predator lay on the ground for several minutes, but the victim urged Oun to not call the police, fearing that her family would worry. When the attacker came to, he jumped up and ran off.
The incident happened just before 2 am on 15 June. The victim had just parted ways with her friends after spending the evening at a nightclub in Glasgow, and she decided to cut through the park.
Oun, a doorman at a nightclub who has lived in Glasgow for 13 years, had gone out for a run with his puppy dog after work and happened to be passing the park just as the woman started screaming.
The Scottish Daily Record managed to get in touch with the hero, who quickly made light of his actions.
“I don’t feel like I am a hero. It’s a man’s job to protect the innocent. If I see a person in danger, then I will intervene. I would not want to ignore it and then read the next day that a woman had been raped or murdered,” Oun told the Daily Record. [/restrict]
