Here's My Question? How someone else could have been involved in a situation like this, without such a civil authority? Not many of us has Police IDs and most of the time when crap like this occurs there's no officers of law is present. I've overheard dozens of conversations like that and even has put my hands in a few as well. To be honest, hasn't gone very well for me on the ground situation!

If you are with another woman (gf, wife, mother, sister or other) you can wait for the guy to go to the toilets or smoke a cigg or whatever and go to offer your help to the girl, offer to drop her home or to the police station to fill a complain. If you are alone, it's better to ask the restaurant staff to call an officer, explaining them that there is someone threatening a girl and that you are scared for her safety. Stay there until they arrive so you can be a witness of the events. If no such situation happen (you're out and there is no authority figure to help you or no way to talk to the girl alone) then just step in, offer the girl a chance to run away and talk to the man about his behavior and how you're not letting this happen. Whoever hits first is the punishable one so stay calm and just offer her a chance to hide somewhere. Afterwards, if you manage to make him leave, encourage her to fill a police complain in which you can be called as a witness, leaving her your details.

I had goosebumps & might cry a little ;) What a wonderful story and wonderful man... If only all men were like that cop. Unfortunately most of the guys I know are more like that douche :/ Bad luck, I guess...
