“The group was thankfully successful in doing so, and they remained on site to ensure that the police and eventually the ambulance arrived," the rep continued, emphasizing there were "no heroes" in the horrifying incident. "This specific incident highlights a larger systemic issue of marginalised members of society not being treated with the dignity and respect they deserve."

Patel's rep added that his client hopes "the same level of media attention this story is receiving" can motivate lawmakers to be "compassionate in determining long-term solutions to help not only the individuals who were involved but the community at large."
