Charlie Blackmore was driving home from work around 4 a.m. when he spotted a woman on the ground being kicked in the head and stomach.
That’s when he jumped out of the car and sprung into action.
“I said ‘stop’ and he starts coming towards me and that`s when I drew on him. He started getting closer and I said ‘get down on the ground,’” Blackmore said.
Blackmore held his gun on the suspect until police arrived.
Blackmore says when officers arrived, the forced the suspect to the group. They also asked Blackmore to show his concealed carry permit.
“I put my hands up turned around and said ‘you can grab it out of my wallet.’ He checked my permit, gave me my wallet back, and then interviewed me for their paperwork,” Blackmore said.
The attacker has not been identified.
