MURRAY, Utah — Two days after a beating in the parking lot at University of Utah hospital, Logan Twitchell suffers only from cuts and bruises.

“Considering what I went through, right now I feel really good,” said Logan.

The 19-year-old had just dropped off a friend at the emergency room when two acquaintances pulled him out of his car and started punching Wednesday night.

“When I say she saved my life, she saved my life,” said Logan.

A realtor delivering cookies to the hospital for Door Dash intervened with a stun gun.

“I remember looking back, I was like, ‘What kind of woman is this?’ She freaking charged at them," he said.

Friday night outside his Murray home, Logan thanked Rebekah Parke for the first time since the assault.

“I’m so happy to see you,” Rebekah said as they hugged.

Both agree Parke was put in the area at the just the right moment to take action when Logan needed help the most.

“I respect her a lot because I wasn’t expecting someone to just chase them off. When I was screaming, I wasn’t expecting anyone to show up,“ said Logan.

“I would like to think that anyone would do that, you know, if they were in a position to,” Rebekah said.

The pair took pictures and promise to meet up again soon.

As for the two suspects, they were caught by officers Wednesday.

University of Utah Police say they are still investigating the assault.
