The Police Department of Phoenix saluted and promoted the man for his heroic act. 

On the first day of February, a young girl was attacked by a man while she was standing in the street waiting for her boyfriend. 

There is video evidence that the man was wandering on the street where the girl was waiting. He is seen as he began running faster and then grabbing the girl by the neck.
