    The 9-minute footage of the encounter has since gone viral on social media. 

    It shows Mohan, who is half-Jewish, confronting the out-of-town visitor and asking what he is putting up around his town. 

    Mohan said he was out walking his dog with his girlfriend at the time.  

    ‘Let me see your stickers?’ he says to the suspect, a white male, sporting dark jeans, black leather jacket, black face mask and sunglasses. 

    When he sees what the stickers are, Mohan tells him: ‘Don’t be putting that up in my f***ing town, bro?’ 

    The suspect tells Mohan he is putting them up because he ‘believe[s] in the ideology’.  

    The footage continues as the suspect walks away with Mohan following and telling him: ‘Putting up Nazi stickers in Fairfax? Let me see your face, bro. You keep putting them up if you want and I will keep ripping them off.’

    He is later heard telling the suspect ‘not in my city bro’ and ‘go back to your car’ to which the 19-year-old replies: ‘Why? So you can take a picture of my license plate?’

    Fairfax police were called to the scene.

    Police confirmed they had detained the man in the photos and video and that he was an out-of-towner. 

    Mohan’s footage is being used as evidence in the case, they said.

    The case has been referred to the Marin County District Attorney’s office for charges of hate crimes and vandalism to be filed. 

    Mohan, an amateur boxer, told ABC7 he was ‘not a hero’ but was just ‘doing what is right’ to defend his town.

    ‘For him to come and put up Nazi stickers in a place where he doesn’t even live and in the middle of the day? Thinking no one would do anything about it? That is crazy to me,’ he said. 

    ‘If I had hit him, I would be the one in jail in cuffs,’ said Mohan. ‘It’s just right and wrong. I am not a hero. Just doing what is right.’
