"Everyone was driving past like they didn't see nothing," said a 40-year old Stoughton woman. She was driving on Dane St., near busy S. Park St., Thursday afternoon when she spotted two muggers on top of downed man. They were "grabbing him by the head and punching him," she would later tell police. While others chose not to get involved, she was not about to look the other way. She stopped, got out, ran across the street, and yelled for the criminals to stop. They did, and fled with the 20-year old victim's cell phone. He said he knew one of his attackers, but not the other. Both are at large. The witness, who ended the violence, said she was very disturbed by what she saw.
