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.

    Sir, I think it’s spelled Shytcago, with a silent “T”. But I haven’t been there since boot camp.
