Resident rushes to aid of woman

DWAYNE Carter was relaxing at home when he heard the screams of a woman in pain.

He saw the female victim walking past his house, bleeding and calling out for help.

Without thinking twice, he ran out of his house to help the woman who told him she had been cut.

Mr Carter walked the victim up the street to another house before phoning for an ambulance.

He said he put his shirt around her wound and waited until the ambulance arrived before leaving.

Mr Carter said he wasn't surprised by the incident.

"This area has a bit of a reputation for it," Mr Carter said.
