A Monsey man was attacked by muggers Sunday night as he returned home from Maariv only to be saved by the timely intervention of Chaverim.
During a walk home from shul following Maariv, two men, armed with a knife and pistol, threw the victim to the ground and demanded he hand over his money. The two assailants threatened to shoot the man if he did not comply.
As the man shouted for help, however, neighbors alerted police, and members of the Chaverim went out to assist the victim.
The two suspects fled the scene, running into a nearby forest. When police arrived, Chaverim volunteers assisted officers in locating the suspects, who were arrested and transferred for questioning.
