A 31-year-old Arab man is being hailed a hero after saving a female expat from being assaulted by a group of men - risking his own life in the process.

According to the Filipino Times, Nayef bin Drizi Al Wahbi Al Harbi stopped a group of men from laying their hands on an expat teacher in Saudi Arabia. Al Harbi is a former serviceman who now works as a driver. During one of his routine drives, he spotted a suspicious-looking group of men standing outside the home of the female expat.

Speaking to Sabq, Al Harbi recalled how the events unfolded:

"I had dropped all the other teachers home, except for one. My mother (muharram) was in the vehicle with us; when we got close to the woman's house, I noticed someone moving behind the entrance of her residence. I asked her to stay in the car with my mom and went inside to check if anyone was there," he said.

As he approached the gate of the house, two men mugged him. He then came to realise that they were waiting for the female teacher. The men hid underneath the staircase which leads to her apartment.

Sensing the danger the woman could fall into, he fought off the men until they ran off. During the altercation, one of the suspects jumped at Al Harbi and stabbed him in the arm.

When he reached the hospital, the 31-year-old realised that he wasn't stabbed once, but rather multiple times. His heroic deed quickly spread on social media where he gained universal praise.
