Man Who Stopped Rape With Firearm Talks About Incident *WATCH*
AUSTIN, TX — When Josh Williams goes jogging in Austin’s Hike-and-Bike Trail, he makes sure to have at least three things, according to KVUE:
His cellphone, a flashlight, and his gun.
Early one morning in September, Williams heard screams while on his route.
When he investigated, he discovered a woman being sexually assaulted.
“I came up, pulled my gun and told him to get off of her,” he said according to KVUE. “Get on your knees and show me your hands.”
Instead, the attacker bolted. However, that attacker, later identified as 22-year-old Richard McEachern, was later caught by authorities thanks to the description of the man given by Williams and the woman who he attacked.
And for those of you who are curious, Williams was carrying a GLOCK 43 and using a Crossbreed Holster.
Take a look at what Williams said in reflection of the incident in an interview with KVUE:
