A Group of Santas from SantaCon Help Police Catch a Guy Who Stabbed Someone


This weekend was SantaCon in New York, which is a pretty infamous event every year where people dress like Santa, go on a bar crawl, get hammered, and cause all sorts of chaos in the city.

Well, chalk one up for SantaCon's nice list. Some Santas were riding the Long Island Rail Road home from Manhattan on Saturday night when they saw two guys get in a fight: A 45-year-old and a 22-year-old. Those two guys fighting weren't dressed as Santa or coming from SantaCon. The 45-year-old stabbed the 22-year-old in the leg during the fight.

So some of the Santa's jumped in, took down the 45-year-old, and turned him over to the cops when the train got to the next stop. Then they helped rush the 22-year-old to the hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.

No word on if this will cause Santa to be late delivering presents this year.
