"Get out, get out, get out, get out," Rodriguez, who was attending an after-hours party, recalled hearing. COSTUMED CRUSADERS Rodriguez said that he saw the passenger "full-on punch" the woman in the car, and so he and his friend yanked open the door and dragged the man out. As Rodriguez and his friend grabbed the alleged attacker, Hardnett is said to have then turned his anger on the on the pair. A group of five furries, still in their costumes, then reportedly came to their aid. The moment was captured by a DJ named Robbie who posted the video on Twitter. A pink dinosaur appeared to wrestle the suspect by the head and shoulders, before a tiger then knelt on the man to restrain him. By the time the video ends, the car has driven off. According to reports, San Jose Police arrived within a few minutes of the furries restraining the man – but they did not detail the attire of the rescuers in the report.
