Hero Doctor Who Was Shot While Stopping an Attack on Woman Speaks Out: ‘I’d Do the Same Thing Again’

When Peter Gold saw a man dragging a woman by the hair toward his vehicle around 4 a.m. on Nov. 20, 2015, in New Orleans, he didn’t think. He just reacted.

“I said to myself, ‘This isn’t right,’ ” Gold, 27, tells PEOPLE, speaking out Tuesday for the first time about the incident.

“The next thing I knew I was out of the car and yelling at the guy, ‘Leave this girl alone! Get away from her!’ ” Gold recalls.

The man, later identified as Euric Cain, turned to Gold and demanded money, he says.

CCTV released after ‘Good Samaritan’ was scammed out of cash after stopping to help motorist

Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with a fuel scam.

At about 4pm on Thursday, February 9, the victim, a woman in her 50s, was flagged down by a man while travelling on the A142 slip road at the junction with the A14 near Fordham.

The man said he was low on fuel and asked the woman to lend him money in return for gold rings.

The victim refused to give the man cash but agreed to drive to the nearest petrol station to pay for his fuel where the man filled up with £49.97 worth of fuel and then left giving the victim a fake business card.

PC Rob Knapper said: “We are keen to identify the man in the CCTV image as we believe he will be able to assist us with our investigation.”

Good Samaritan carjacked after stopping to help 4 women on Alberta highway

A woman who stopped on the highway near Cochrane, Alta., to help a group of women who appeared to be stranded was instead attacked and left on the side of the road as they drove away in her car.

The victim was driving east on Saturday at about 1:30 p.m. on Highway 1 at the intersection with Highway 68. She spotted four women standing beside a car with its hood up, RCMP said in a release.

When the Good Samaritan got out of her car, one of the women assaulted her and then they all got in the victim’s car and drove off. She was not seriously hurt, RCMP said.
