On November 30th, Channel A reported that ATONE stopped a man from attempting to sexually assault a woman earlier that morning.
ATONE threw the man over his shoulder and kept him under control until the police arrived to arrest the assailant. 
ATONE explained in a call with News1, “At around 8:30 in the morning, I was sleeping when I heard something like a woman's scream outside. It seemed strange, so I opened the window and saw a foreign man trying to sexually assault a woman. In a hurry, I warned the man through the window and ran out. Once I was outside, the woman ran away barefoot, and the man came at me while swinging his fists. While we were arguing, I asked a car passing by to report to the police. Then, some people came out of a church nearby and helped me suppress the man. I didn't do it alone. It was something done together by the citizens. I only threw him over my shoulder because he was trying to run away.”
The public has reacted positively to his heroic actions.
He added that he felt embarrassed and stunned by the positive reaction online.
The assailant, an English instructor from the United States, was booked by the police for attempted sexual assault. He was drunk at the time and is reportedly denying the charges.
