Simon told Muni Diaries:
It’s been a whirlwind couple of days but I just hope I’m the one with a black eye and not my city…I was not on the bus but in the vicinity of the offense. My friend Sarah saw what was going on and said something along the lines of, ‘This isn’t right!’ I agreed and took off running toward the bus. The last thing I remember is getting in between the offenders and the bus, shoving them away shouting ‘No. This is not what we do. We do not do this!’ And then: sucker punch, floor, kicking, blood, and my awesome friends getting me out of there.
