A doorbell at around 3 PM woke Sheru up and seeing the man trying to molest the woman, he proceeded to attack the man.

Unfortunately, the stray was stabbed in the process, injuring his front limb. After the man's plan was foiled, he fled the house.

The stray is currently under medical examination.
