A Chicago woman beat up a would-be rapist with a crowbar, knocking him unconscious. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, the local District Attorney confirmed that she had acted in self defense and wouldn’t be charged for using the crowbar on him.
Angela Ferguson remembers waking up in her bed to a neighbor on top of her, demanding sex in on Oct. 17.
“He kept saying, don’t look at me bitch, I’m the Grim Reaper. So he kept hitting me in my face, and doing blows to the head, so I did this, and I said please, please, why is you doing this?” Ferguson said.
Dorval Grice, 30, a long time neighbor, even threatened to kill Ferguson. He snuck in through a living room window that had a broken lock and entered her bedroom while she was sleeping, reports WNYW.
“When I kept hitting him, hitting him, he wouldn’t give up. He wouldn’t give up. I kept beating him, and seen blood everywhere. They say he had to have three surgeries on his head,” Ferguson said.
Ferguson managed to push Grice out of her bedroom, but the assailant broke down the door and got back in. The woman remembered she had a crowbar under her bed and beat Grice with it until he was knocked out.
“I just kept hitting him, kept hitting him, kept hitting him and kept hitting him. He was like this, aaahhhh, knocked out on the bed,” Ferguson said.
Then, Ferguson ran outside and called 911, according to WLS. The police failed to show up after waiting for a while, so she called them again.
“So then I called the back again, she said who is this, I said this is Angela Ferguson, please come help me, please come help me, so I stood there and I waited on them to come. I actually had to call them three times,” Ferguson said.
The woman’s strength and bravery were instilled in Ferguson thanks to her parents teaching her how to box and not cry.
“You’re not gonna put Angie out. And so he should have knew, that where he messed up. I bet he won’t break into nobody else’s house,” Ferguson said.
Grice was arrested and charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault and home invasion. His bond is set to $250,000.
