Brave victim leaves attempted sexual assailant bruised and bloody

A woman in Sheffield, England left her assailant bruised and bloody after he attempted to sexually assault her.

Johnathon Holmes, 35, followed his young female victim for over a mile before jumping and dragging her into the bushes on her walk home from work.

Holmes allegedly climbed on top of his victim and pushed his tongue into her mouth after telling her, "You're going to enjoy this."

However, he soon realized that he picked the wrong woman to mess with when she began to fight back. The case was heard at Sheffield Crown Court on Nov. 1.

The woman bravely faced him, once again, in court as she read her victim statement.

The female victim bravely punched Holmes in the stomach multiple times, biting his tongue and using her keys to stab him in the neck in the process.

The injured assailant tried running away, but not before hurting himself further by while jumping over the railings.

Holmes was eventually caught by police a few hours later. He told officers that he was drunk and had no recollection of the incident.

Holmes was found guilty of sexual assault and sentenced to four and a half years in jail.

Judge Sarah Wright added that she believes the attacker deliberately sought out his victim. She applauded the woman on how she "fought back with considerable bravery and courage".
