Attempted robbery on walk bridge from Garden court hotel N2. 2x charlie males approached 1 bravo cyclist on the bridge. Stopped him and demanded his bag. Driving i saw this and instantly pulled over. Jumped out pulled my firearm and they ran. I ran after them pointing gun tempted to shoot but ja thats another story. I didnt i instead shouted at them to drop hia belongings or i will fire. After the 2nd shout the guy dropped the bag. I retrieved it and took it back to the cyclist. An elderly black man who says he is a lecturer at UCT out for a cycle. Thankfull and scared i offered to drop him on campus. He refused and i then drove next to him while he cycled back. The guys who tried to rob him i suspect live on that field just after the garden court hotel. Against the fencing heading to town u can see a small structure erected. Looks like thats where they came from but i cant be certain. Tempted to shoot them i had to keep my composure or else thats another issue for me. What bothers me most is the fact that im the only 1 who saw and rushed to help this gent. Other people stopped to look at whats going on screaming at me to shoot but nobody making any attempts to assist me to apprehend these 2 amd wait for police. I let them get away bcoz i was more concerned about getting the man his belongings and making sure he is ok. He was shaken up. But fortunately not hurt. I dont want a medal or a thanks bcoz he was appreciative of me. I just want humanity among us people. Compassion and willingness to sacrifice to help others in need when we are in a position to do so
