Former Arizona Senator Martha McSally came forward this week with horrific news.
According to McSally, she was sexually assaulted while out for a run near the Nebraska-Iowa border.
Unfortunately, this is not the first assault of this type against McSally.
Here We Go Again
McSally came forward prior to say that she had been sexually assaulted by a superior officer when she was serving.
This time, McSally stated that she was running along a river near the state border when she was taken into a bear hug by a man, who then proceeded to assault her.
McSally was in the area for a speech on "courage and heart, and how to be a brave heart."
She then stated, "And I just had it put to the test.
"A man came up behind me, and he engulfed me in a bear hug, and he molested and fondled me until I fought him off."
McSally continued, "I was in a fight-flight-or-freeze, and I chose to fight.
"I ran after him, I threw my water bottle at him, and I chased him into the brush, where he was then hiding as I called 911 and waited for the police to come. I don’t think they found him, and I’m OK."
She was right, as no suspect had been arrested at the time, but it was announced on Friday that police do now have a suspect in custody.
Council Bluffs Police Department announced a warrant was issued for 25-year-old Dominic M. Henton.
Around 4:30 a.m. local time, records show that he was booked into custody in Omaha, NE.
McSally was a member of the House until the passing of the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), at which point she was appointed to the seat.
However, her time in office was short, as McSally lost a special election for the seat to Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ).
