Two reporters of Turkey's Demirören News Agency (DHA) rescued a woman from assailant Tolgahan Toktaş who forced her into a cab with a knife in the western province of Bursa on June 30.
Reporter Derya Evren and cameraman İsmail Hakkı Seymen saw the woman resisting to get out of the taxi on the street where Toktaş brought her to his mother's house.
Evren and Seymen noticed the knife in a holster on Toktaş's belt and got out of their vehicle to help the woman, safely escorting her out of the cab where Toktaş was harassing her.
Evren shielded the woman from the assailant and told Toktaş to give her the knife he was carrying, and the assailant is heard telling the reporter that he had taken the knife from the woman who allegedly tried to attack him.
Evren and Seymen guarded the woman in their news car until police arrived on the scene and detained Toktaş on charges of injury, breach of personal freedom, armed threats, and violation of restraining orders.
Toktaş also threatened Seymen for recording the incident and the woman said that she had made seven criminal complaints about the assailant, and even obtained restraining orders against him.
Evren said that DHA reporters will "always stand against violence against women," and that they could have witnessed a femicide if they had arrived at the scene 10 minutes later.
