Just a few days ago, former Republican Arizona Senator Martha McSally came out with a disturbing announcement.
While running along the Missouri River recently, along the Iowa-Nebraska border, she was assaulted.
Luckily for lovers of justice everywhere, the Council Bluffs Police Department currently have the subject in custody as of the time of writing.
The department had previously announced that it was putting out a warrant for the arrest of the subject, identified as age 25 Dominic Henton of Papillion.
He was charged with one count of assault with intent to commit sexual abuse in relation to the incident.
Investigators had released images that they say show Henton following Martha McSally "eastbound over the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge and then southbound onto the trail."
"Senator McSally can be seen walking in front of Henton in the photos," the Council Bluffs Police Department said. She was assaulted "as she was jogging on the River's Edge Service Road south of I-480 bridge underpass. McSally fought off the attacker and chased him into a dense area of brush near the I-480 bridge. McSally lost sight of the suspect prior to the officers arriving."
Martha McSally has previously spoken about being a rape survivor, told the world of the scary ordeal in an Instagram video.
She said she was minding her own business when a man came from behind her and "engulfed me."
McSally claims that she was scheduled to speak in Nebraska about "courage and heart, and how to be a brave heart."
Talk about leading by example, she's been a real warrior throughout this whole ordeal.
"I was in a fight-flight-or-freeze, and I chose to fight," McSally said. "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."
