Two 'good Samaritans' have been praised for intervening to stop two men attacking a woman for her handbag in Greater Manchester.
The pair were driving along Warwick Road in Chorlton when they saw the woman struggling with two men at 21:30 BST on Friday.
They leapt out of their van and chased the men off, police said, preventing a possible attack and robbery.
Det Sgt Rick Thompson said they risked their own safety to help the victim.
He added: "The actions of these men are to be commended."
Police are urging the two good Samaritans and any other witnesses to come forward to help with inquiries.
