UPS drivers hailed as heroes after chasing off 2 suspects who attacked man


The Gardena police department posted video on Facebook, writing "An important reminder to always pay attention to your surroundings."

Police say it happened on September 7 around 2pm, when the victim was leaving a bank and heading to a nearby UPS store on Western. 
As he was walking in the parking lot, police say two male suspects came up from behind and attacked him with a crowbar. The suspects attempted to take the victim's property, but fled after UPS employees and customers ran out from the store.
The suspects fled in a white sedan and the victim was not seriously injured.

The police also wrote in their post, "Shout out to UPS for hiring heroes!"
