Sword swinging hero comes to victim's rescue on Phoenix Metro Light Rail car

PHOENIX - A YouTube video taken on a Phoenix Light Rail car shows a sword swinging hero coming to the rescue of a man being beaten up by other passengers.

The video, posted on YouTube, says the video was shot October 13 at 2 a.m. near Central Avenue & Camelback. 

In the video shot by a passenger, you see two men start punching and kicking a third man in front of other passengers who are heard screaming in the background.  

A fourth man, dressed in a black baseball cap and coat, draws a large sword from his side and points it at the men in the fight, holding it in the ready position.

The sword works. The men stop attacking their victim and get off the train immediately and the video stops.
