It began when a woman started yelling and screaming outside the complex, which was built to house formerly homeless veterans, according to police and the victim, Randy McDonald.
From his third floor unit, McDonald heard the commotion and went down to help. He explained that he had served as a medic in the Air Force from late 1970s to the early 1980s and felt he would be able to assist. So he went down to talk to her.
“Because no one else is doing it. I thought by the cops, the time they got here, it might be too late, cause I didn’t know what the situation was. I didn’t know if there was another person out here assaulting her,” McDonald told KTLA. “I just did my job as a veteran.”
