How an American Sailor Beat the Crap Out of Her Knife-Wielding Rapist
The sailor says he tore her clothes and began to molest her and bite her body. When she fought back, he pulled a knife and told her to do what he said. That was his big mistake. She testified that when he tried to grab her again, “I saw my chance”:
The woman, an off-duty US navy sailor, knocked the knife from his grasp, broke it in two, bit his hand, wrestled him to the ground and put him in a stranglehold between her thighs.
“Having beaten him into submission” she left the bus and alerted authorities. The driver, who is from Pakistan, was arrested the next day. He’s been charged with attempted rape, threatening to kill, assault and consuming alcohol illegally. The trial resumes next week.
