"What you probably never noticed was the other two guys, the ones in the other sidewalk, the ones that pointed at you and started following you before we crossed each other the first time. You didn't notice how they looked at you or the fact that they seemed to be on drugs, or a bit drunk, or maybe both."
"You also didn't notice - when you passed me in your car - that they were in the corner of the dead-end street, looking at you passing by and then at me. You also missed the next ten minutes while I waited in my car for the police to arrive (I called them while you were getting into your car), the 15 minutes of questions that followed and me showing them the picture of the two guys that I took while I was following you."
"I'm really sorry that I scared you, but to be completely honest, I was extremely scared myself. I'm no hero by any means, and my instinct was telling me to get the hell out of there, but you could have been my wife (she parks in the same street) or my daughter. I wouldn't be able to forgive myself if something happened and I hadn't done anything to stop it."
