One person who witnessed the incident said: “The female was unconscious. The blue thing is her jacket - he tried to hide her when people started looking

“He seemed like a dangerous individual so me and my partner kept clear. Loads of people saw but no one approached from what I saw.”

Doncaster is going downhill and people need to do their part.”
