Sounds like "Genovese syndrome".
Famous murder case from New York.
Witnesses all assumed that because there were other people around that someone else would intervene or call the police. So Kitty Genovese was stabbed to death in a busy place in broad daylight and screaming.
Eta Also known as The bystander effect.
