GoFundMe created for tuition of subway hero who stopped a rape
A crowdfunding campaign has been created for a New York City subway hero who stopped a rapist and helped a young woman in Brooklyn last week.
Maurice Osborne sprang into action as soon as he heard the screams of a 28-year-old woman on a subway platform in Park Slope.
“As soon as she said that he was trying to rape her, I just reacted,” the 37-year-old told CBS.
In an effort to thank the Osborne, and “on behalf of all women everywhere,” a GoFundMe campaign was created to help raise funds for Osborne’s tuition.
According to CBS, Osborne is studying to become a medical assistant, while living in a Bed Stuy shelter.
The crowdfunding campaign’s goal is $5,000 and has reached $4,490 in its first day.
