Customer and former wrestler saves employee during a Subway assault

Gabriel Pitzulo--a former wrestler and football player--was in the right place at the right time when he walked into a Subway on Indianapolis’s south side for his usual lunch break. Upon his arrival, he saw Daniel Saunders verbally and physically assaulting a Subway employee saying he was attempting to leave the store to potentially cause more damage.

“I was afraid that he was either leaving to get something to harm her," Pitzulo said.

Pitzulo immediately tackled Saunders to the ground and held him there until police arrived to make a formal arrest minutes later. “I did combat sports for quite a while, so I was completely controlling,” shared Pitzulo. “He (was) trying to bite me and I didn't want to punch him or anything. I didn't want to hurt him too bad. I just held him in place.”

Distict Manager Aara Khan was thankful for Pitzulo’s courage. “It could’ve turned out very dangerous,” explained Khan. “Luckily he was here at the right time and the right place.” Khan considers Pitzulo a hero.

“You can be a hero anytime, anywhere you go. Right place, right time and that guy is a hero.”

Daniel Saunders was arrested and is being charged with Battery Resulting in Bodily Injury.
