Transcript for Massachusetts jogger fights off kidnapping attempt
Next tonight, the woman attacked while jogging in Massachusetts. She fights back. Here's ABC's linsey Davis. Reporter: A sexual assault and attempted abduction in broad daylight, all caught on camera. Watch carefully. A car pulls up in front of a woman jogging Sunday morning in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. A man runs toward her. Police say the man, they later identified as Gordon Lyons, a convicted rapist, grabbed both of her arms and groped her while trying to drag her to his car. But the 37-year-old fought back, telling a local newspaper, she screamed and kicked at her attacker. He stumbles, falling to the ground, then takes off at high speed. She also had the presence of mind to take a picture to help law enforcement catch the perpetrator. Reporter: It happened right in Donald prohovich's front yard. She had some suntan lotion on her, I think she may have been slippery, and she was able to breakaway. Reporter: Lyons was arrested a short time later, after crashing his car. Today, during his arraignment in the hospital, the 57-year-old hid under a sheet. Lyons faces multiple charges, including kidnapping. He entered a plea of not guilty and was ordered to be held without bail. David? Thank you, linsey.
