Anti-Wimp: Armed runner stopped sex assault on Austin trail

The Austin American-Statesman reports: “According to an arrest affidavit filed against [Richard Jordon] McEachern, 22, the woman told police she was headed east on the trail early Friday when she heard loud steps approaching behind her.

“The victim was grabbed behind by the suspect with both the suspect’s arms, (bear hug),” the affidavit said. “The victim said they fell to the ground and she was on her back and the suspect was on top of her.”

Remember these people at UT-Austin who think guns cause crime? Do they think the woman should not have been defended from rape?

“The document said the woman reported that the attacker put his hand over her mouth and kept saying “shh, it’s me baby, it’s me” as she struggled to scream and use a whistle she carried to call for help.

“As the assault continued, the man told the victim that he was a virgin, and this was his first time, according to the report.

“Another jogger who was carrying a flashlight and a handgun heard the victim scream and ran over to help.

“The affidavit said the jogger told police he shined his light in the direction of the screams and saw the victim on her back and the attacker on his left side on top of the victim.

“The jogger pointed his gun at the suspect and demanded he get off the victim. The attacker stood up and was naked from the waist down, the affidavit said.

“The woman got up and started walking to the jogger to get away from the attacker.

“The affidavit said she did not know the jogger had a gun because she’d been blinded by his flashlight.

“The attacker took off with the woman’s shoes and shorts when she walked in front of the jogger’s line of fire, the affidavit said.

“Two people picked McEachern out of a photo lineup after he was taken into custody, police said.”
