Hero Security Guard Rushes to Help Woman Attacked Outside Apartment Building

The security guard and the woman managed to fend off the attacker before police arrived, though he continued shouting at them once they were safely inside.

A San Francisco woman had to fight for her life early Sunday morning after a crazed man attacked her in the lobby of her building. 

In video of the incident, a building security guard in the lobby reacted instantly by calling 911 and rushing over to help the victim, Paneez Kosarian.

Finally, Kosarian kicked the assailant away and crawled into the lobby.

Kosarian and the guard closed the front door as the assailant used all his might to try to get inside. Finally, the heavy door closed and the automatic lock clicked. 

Kosarian said that when she encountered the man outside her building he seemed to be on drugs.

"He kept saying that [the guard] was a robot and that he is trying to kill her and he asked me, ‘Would you trust me if I am trying to save your life, if I go inside and kill her in front of you?’ That is when I started to panic because that is when I realized this man is capable of basically anything,” she told Inside Edition. 

She added that she wanted to thank the guard for saving her. 

Cops detained the alleged attacker, 25-year-old Austin James Vincent, on charges of  battery, false imprisonment and second-degree robbery. He has pleaded not guilty. 

But after all that violence and terror he allegedly inflicted, the judge released him. Vincent is now back on the streets of San Francisco

The victim is outraged. She even tweeted video of her attack to California Gov. Gavin Newsom with the caption, “the judge...believes that this man is not a danger to our community. Please save our city!!”
