After an alleged assault in Allston, a selfless rescuer

Two men charged; woman says she threw her body atop victim

A woman was walking down Allston Street just after 2 a.m. on Jan. 26 when she saw two men standing over a third, one of them slamming the victim’s head into the pavement, she later told authorities. The woman ran toward the attackers and threw herself over the unconscious man on the ground.

When police arrived, she was sitting on the bloody sidewalk, cradling the head of the man, later identified by police as Michael Hudson, who had been homeless until recently.
