Between the constant barrage of gun massacres and a Congress hell-bent on the destruction of America, it seems we need to Netflix stream Schindler’s List just to lighten the mood. People are seriously losing their sh*t and there’s not telling what will happen next.
So, it was especially refreshing to hear about a woman going “full Chuck Norris” and beating the ever-loving crap out of a despicable would-be rapist.
Last month, the UK’s The Mirror reported that Johnathan Holmes, 35, attacked the woman on the streets of Sheffield, England. However, Holmes found himself on the receiving end of a massive beat down after his NOT victim left him bloodied with two black eyes. Holmes recently plead guilty to the attack and was sentenced to four and a half years in prison.
The woman, whose name has not been made public, testified in court that her beastly predator followed her in the early morning hours for over a mile, only to blind side her and knock her into some bushes. Being cognizant of her surroundings, she sensed she was being followed and prepared herself by placing her car keys in her hand as a potential weapon, according to testimony.
She also pulled out her phone to call her partner, according to The Mirror.

As Holmes forced her on her back and climbed on top of her, he told her, “you are going to enjoy this,” she said. He then thrust his tongue into her mouth, and she chomped down on it as hard as she could. When he relaxed his grip she maneuvered herself on top of him and, with her keys pressed to his neck, continued screaming for help, she told the court.Two passers-by heard her cries and likely prompted his attempt to flee, Prosecutor Rachael Harrison said, according to The Sheffield Star. But as he jumped over some railings, he only injured himself some more.
Well, alright, alright, alright! She was very fortunate to have the fortitude and fight to overpower her attacker. Sadly, many women are not as fortunate. According to RAIN.org, 17.7 million American women have been victims of attempted or completed rape. But as the Bill Cosby saga has taught us, a great many sexual assaults go unreported.
As for Holmes, he can rot in prison for the next four-and-a-half years knowing he clearly messed with the wrong woman.
