Good Samaritan stops suspect who was beating woman on NYC street

A good Samaritan interrupted a would-be mugger as he pummeled a woman into unconsciousness a block away from her Lower East Side home, officials said Monday.

The 61-year-old victim suffered bleeding on her brain, and needed to be intubated after the Saturday attack, prosecutors said

Police sources said the attacker, Devin Brown, 23, was looming over the victim on Forsyth St. near Stanton St., by Sara D. Roosevelt Park, when a passing motorist noticed her legs sticking out from behind a tree at 6 a.m.

The witness got out of his car and asked Brown what he was doing, and Brown twice yelled out, “She robbed me!”
