A Brooklyn man who witnessed a group of men attacking and robbing a teen stepped in and fought them off with a bike seat in front of a bodega.
According to PIX 11, Vincent Millan,43, said he thought of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz when he saw the men attempting to steal the teen’s moped and ran out of his home. He told police that the men were armed with knives and a metal pipe so he used a bike seat to protect the 17-year-old victim.
“I held the door and was yelling ‘you’re not gonna get in here, you’re not going to do this to this kid today. They were really being aggressive and they had bad intentions for that kid. They were breaking things over my back, smashing me in my face with metal rods.”
The fight was captured on a surveillance camera at a bodega in Bushwick and Millan said the men almost ended his life when he started attacking them with a bike seat. He was transported to a local hospital where he had to get eight stitches on the back of his head.

“I don’t regret stopping them from getting their hands on that kid, I’m a human being, human beings should not be treating each other like this,”
Police reported that the teen was not seriously hurt during the melee and two out of the six suspects have been arrested on charges of robbery, possession of stolen property, unlawful possession of marijuana, and other related offenses.
