Alert victim stabs Fort Worth rape suspect

- Fort Worth police say a woman stabbed a man who tried to sexually assault her Friday morning at an apartment complex.

It happened around 8 a.m. at the Brentwood Apartment Homes on Brentwood Stair Road. The woman said the man grabbed her and pulled her into an apartment.

But because of several other recent attacks in the area, police said she was armed with a small knife. She defended herself by cutting the suspect multiple times and then ran away.

Officers found the suspect in the adjacent apartment and arrested him for attempted sexual assault. He was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The victim was also treated at the hospital for minor injuries.

Police are now investigating whether this case is related to others involving a sexual predator in the area.
