Real Life SuperHero Patrols the Streets of Winston-Salem Helping Those In Need

January 23, 2020

Did you know that there actually are Superheroes walking among us? Well if you if you're in Winston-Salem there are.

There is a masked vigilante named "Night Watch" that's fighting crime and helping the homeless. Mainly helping the homeless. He also says he is more than a costumed crime-fighter. "I'm not looking to be a Batman and go around beating up criminals. That's not what I do, but you know if I'm going around trying to help people and I come across a situation where someone seems like they're in trouble I'm going to step in."

For the last month or so, he's been patrolling the streets. 

He's dressed in all black, face partially covered, sporting a pair of goggles.

"It's not so much that I'm excited that people are recognizing me, it's just nice that people aren't totally freaked out like they were before. Now they know who I am and that I'm trying to help," Night Watch tells local TV station, Fox 8. 

An anonymous donor has helped him fill his "super bag" with toiletries, food, clothing and other supplies to help those in need. "What I always tell people is there is no prerequisite for being a good person. We can all do it. It's just the degree to which we can help out," Night Watch said.
