CRETE, AD 22
A young slave girl was rescued from an attacker today by a visiting Jewish interpreter and scribe. The incident occurred in Fair Havens. The attacker, apparently intoxicated, reportedly was beating the girl when a powerful young Jew intervened.
According to witnesses, the rescuer seemed to effortlessly hold the drunken man at bay while protecting the girl. “The attacker exhausted himself flailing at the air,” said one observer. The girl was escorted safely home by the Jew and his employers, a businessman and his son from India.
Some expressed surprise that the Jew did not strike the drunken man. One onlooker said: “He should have gotten at least as many licks as he gave the girl.” The Jewish scribe could not be reached for comment.
