The homeless man who police called a "Good Samaritan" after his throat was slashed while he tried to save a woman is recovering at UNM Hospital.
According to Albuquerque police officer Tasia Martinez, the man, who has not yet been identified, is listed in stable condition.
Last Thursday, the man who friends call "Boston" tried to stop another man who was attacking a woman in the area of 2nd Street and I-40. The suspect, Ralph Chavez, then slashed Boston's throat.
Boston was taken to UNM Hospital in critical condition after the incident.
A woman who asked to go by the name "M" told KOB last week, "He just defends people, he's a good person... He's got a good heart."
Two APD officers later shot and killed Chavez when he approached them with a knife.
