CAPE TOWN - He's not Superman, Batman or the Hulk like these crime-fighting heroes, but a Cape Town man sprang into action to help a total stranger on a train last week.
The 44-year-old came to the aid of a fellow commuter to fend off a couple of armed robbers.
Cape Town trains are not for the faint-hearted.
But this time around, a heroic act on one of the city's trains is gaining all the attention.
Gareth Lundt (24), who declined an on-camera interview, was traveling by train when two men tried to rob him.
Both were dressed in school uniform.
Enter Cape Town’s newest hero. Lorenzo Anthony who knew he had to step in.
“I’ve seen it a couple of times happening on the train. People get robbed. I know the expressions already, I know the way people react – they keep running to get to the next carriage. So, I knew something was up.”
