Why I am proud of Pittsburgh

Police: Citizens Stop East Liberty Attacker

Pittsburgh Police said several ordinary citizens stopped an attack on a woman in the city's East Liberty neighborhood.Officers said two people saw a woman being dragged by her pants behind the library at Baum Square and South Whitfield Street.
One of the witnesses called 911 while another confronted the suspect, who let the woman go and ran off. Police said that witness then chased the attacker until police arrived to arrest him.
Jermaine Angelo Pryor, the suspect in the case, is facing charges which include aggravated assault and unlawful restraint.
Now that makes me proud to know that people won't just stand around when something bad is happening. Thank you Pittsburgh :-)
