A young man recently shared with Facebook's ImStaying how he managed to stop an abusive man from doing further harm to his girlfriend by going over to their apartment and threatening the man who was hitting his woman.
"Imagine it's 3:10 AM and the guy upstairs who has a flat ontop of mine is beating the he'll out of his girlfriend. They are so loud and the noise is so ridiculous, the crying, floor banging and banging of the bed and stuff breaking woke me up.
"I put on my track-pants and went and knocked on their door. I was hurt not only by gender based violence but also by the fact that they woke me from my sleep."
He then details how he threatened to get into the house and beat the man should he continue to beat his girlfriend and soon the baning and crying noises had stopped.
"I didnt confront him because of her personality, I was so pissed but what else cld I do, the door was locked. I wanted to beat the hell out of him, all I could do is caution him that if he can't stand me man to man he must not beat his girlfriend yet alone make noise.
"I educated him that if I hear anyone more noise I will break the door and knock some sense in his mind, also that he must have peaceful conversation with his girlfriend. "
Locals had this to say:
