No gun involved. Good thing the Marine happened along. Chicago is a gun-free zone. The woman would have been raped. If she had had a gun she could have helped herself. She is lucky.
Marine Veteran Stops Rape Attempt Along Chicago Lakefront
A Marine veteran came to the aid of a woman who was being assaulted on the Lakefront Bike Path on Wednesday.
CBS 2’s Susanna Song reports 24-year-old Michael Adams, an East Side resident, was driving south on Lake Shore Drive near 63rd Street Wednesday afternoon, when he saw a young man apparently trying to rape a woman along the lakefront.
He said he thought it was odd when he saw the woman running in typical jogging gear, and a man running right behind her in jeans.
Adams made a U-turn, then saw the man grab the woman, knock her to the ground. Police said the attacker also tried to force the woman’s clothes off.”
