Stranger Saves News Anchor Being Chased Down The Street By Unknown Man

Stranger Saves News Anchor Being Chased Down The Street By Unknown Man

Reporters and anchors are supposed to relay the news, but one media member, unfortunately, found herself as part of the story.

In a video posted on YouTube, Fox 11 Los Angeles anchor Marla Tellez talks about a scary situation she experienced while running on Santa Monica Boulevard. 

Marla, an avid runner, says that while jogging one Saturday morning in January, an unknown man lunged at her. The man then began chasing her down the street…in broad daylight.

“I turn around and he is coming at me full-bore,” she said. “I’ve never felt so much fright.”

While under extreme duress, Marla said she noticed a total and complete stranger, a Good Samaritan, who waved her down. The vehicle then pulled over, opened the door to their car and Marla hopped in. The car, with Marla inside, left the area.

That Good Samaritan, Natalie, met with Marla following the scary incident. She was in the passenger seat, while her husband was driving. 

“I saw him turn around and then, like, run after you,” Natalie said. “Cause I was, like, trying to scream at you, wave my hand down so I could get you to see me.”

Natalie, who was still upset by what she witnessed, added that she felt Marla needed help. 

The clip ends with Marla expressing her gratitude to Natalie for her and her husband’s heroic act, saving her from her would-be attacker. 

Natalie and her husband showed concern for someone they did not know, acted and stepped in to help a stranger in obvious need. Thanks to the heroic and loving efforts of Natalie and her husband, Marla avoided being kidnapped, injured or worse.

Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord your God, he it is that does go with you; he will not fail you, nor forsake you.”
