Man who took a selfie with an unconcious alleged mugger speaks out

Over the weekend, Nathan Wood posted a picture (selfie) on Facebook, of himself and a man who tried to mug him. The selfie was taken after Wood knocked the intruder down, leaving him unconscious.

Woods says though the man attacked him, people seem to be more concern about the smirk on Wood's face, misinterpreting it for arrogance.

A lot of people are getting a bit heated up about my selfie and seeing something that makes them feel uncomfortable, rather than what it stands for.

He says he hopes the photo acts as an inspiration to others than crime does not prevail.

Wood says after the intruder was knocked out, he tried to assist him by making him comfortable. He placed a jacket under his head and called for medical assistance.
