A local woman said she didn't hesitate to step in and help a man who was being attacked.
Joye Sanders now has a bruised cheekbone after police say Frederick Miller punched her in the face.
The whole thing started just before 7 p.m. Wednesday at Northeast Grand and Halsey in Portland. Sanders was in front of McDonald's when police say Miller started shouting biased-based slander to a man on the sidewalk, according to police. The man fired back with a comment, then detectives say Miller violently attacked him.
Sanders says Miller dragged the man into the street, so she jumped in and tried to pull Miller away. That's when police say Miller punched her.
"There was no hesitation. There was not even like, what if I got hurt. I didn't even think about not doing anything," Sanders told FOX 12. "I would've done that with anybody. It doesn't matter, it doesn't matter. Anybody should've."
Miller is in jail charged with assault and intimidation.
