One day while walking home with my dad,a young man who had parked his car by the road side passed in front of us to his car.Suddenly two men came from behind and robbed the man before he could open his car door. In seconds i could not believe a man who was dressed in boots,a chain and nice clothes was lying in front of us in his inner wears.I was embarrassed since i was with my father. The man cried for help since we could not assist him as we feared for our lives too.Later after a few minutes my dad rushed to check on him to see if he was okay.He then called me to give him a lesso i had been covering myself from the cold. After that incident i was cautious of walking alone at night.But i was happy my father assisted the man to his car,they exchanged contacts and since then they have been friends
