Out jogging one morning, a Silver Spring, Md., woman was
grabbed from behind and wrestled to a secluded spot. Once there, a
teenager tried to rape the woman, but she fought back and managed to
escape when her asailant slipped and fell. The woman flagged a ride
home and told her husband, who grabbed a gun and jumped into his
car. The man spotted the would-be-rapist near the assault scene and
held him for police.
