Homeless man hailed as hero in Melbourne attack appears in court

(CNN)A homeless man who was hailed as a hero after intervening in a terror attack in the Australian city of Melbourne just over a week ago has appeared in court charged with theft, Australia’s ABC News reported.

Michael Rogers was captured in shaky cellphone images from the scene repeatedly shoving a shopping cart, known as a shopping trolley in Australia, at attacker Hassan Khalif Shire Ali who had just stabbed three people and was threatening police officers with a knife.
After Rogers, nicknamed “trolley man,” was identified as the brave bystander concerned, a GoFundMe page was set up in his honor.
