“Wonder Woman" was attacked on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles Friday (9/6) and "Superman" came to her aid.
The character impersonators, Jennifer “Wonder Woman" Wenger and Christopher "Superman" Dennis, say they were attacked by a cowboy boot-wearing transient.
The boulevard is full of character impersonators who pose with tourists for tips.
The assault happened in front of the Roosevelt Hotel. The victims said the attacker jumped up and starting running after them.
It was a threat that wasn't taken lightly, especially after a fatal stabbing in June at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue -- a popular tourist spot. A transient allegedly killed a Lynwood, California woman after she refused to give a dollar for snapping a picture of the man and two others.
The two were not attacked while taking pictures. They were taping an episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
On Friday, Wonder Woman took the high road when she was attacked by a transient, who is well-known on the boulevard for her unruly behavior.
Keeping with the superhero spirit and wanting the best for the citizens they protect, Wonder Woman and Superman said they are still on the fence about pressing charges.
But if they do, they said they are going to ask the judge to not give the transient jail time, but get her some psychiatric help.
