She was being chased by a man holding a knife, which was a “scary” sight, Mr Li said.

Alarmingly, the man managed to catch up to the woman by the roadside in front of the ATM.

Grabbing her by her long hair with one hand, he raised his knife and was about to strike when a saviour emerged at that critical moment.

Another man ran up and aimed a flying kick at the bald man’s shoulder, causing him to lose his balance.

The two of them grabbed his arms and managed to take away the weapon.

At this point, the saviour was bleeding profusely but told his friends that he was fine.

The 32-year-old man, who suffered slight injuries, declined to be taken to hospital.

The case is currently under investigation.

Man reportedly chased woman after being rejected

According to Shin Min, the bald man and the woman were housemates who lived in different rooms.

The man had courted the woman but she considered this to be harassment.

This led to their relationship souring before the violent incident occurred.

The man who saved her is also known to the woman, who is a friend.

According to Mr Li, the eyewitness, after the bald man was subdued, he turned to the 46-year-old and said,

He also told him that he shouldn’t have tried to protect her.

Hopefully, the Good Samaritan’s injuries aren’t serious and he recovers quickly.
