Really scary incident from Chicago Breaking News:
"An Uptown man has been charged with attacking a woman in a public restroom in a park near the Foster Avenue beach, police said this morning. Joseph Mbatchou, 29, of the 900 block of West Lawrence Avenue, was charged with attempted criminal sexual assault and battery.
A woman told police that Mbatchou came into the restroom at 5100 N. Simonds Drive in Margate Park around 12:20 p.m. Tuesday, struck her in the face and attempted to sexually assault her, police said."
Be sure to read the rest of the story here. Not only did people in the park hear the screams and break up the attack, another witness followed the alleged attacker on his bike and pointed him out to the police. While we're appalled at the incident, we're glad to know that people were there to prevent it from being even worse.
