While I'm happy this North Carolina woman was able to turn the tables on this scumbag, I only wish she would've had a gun with her at the time of the attack. Maybe it would've prevented her from being abducted and raped at all. I do applaud her courage and level-headedness during the attack though, and her ability to take advantage when the opportunity arose and get the upper hand!
On a side note, I would like someone to explain to me WHY this predator was even loose in the first place after committing sex crimes against children?
A Charlotte woman managed to get a gun from her attacker and held him until authorities arrived, the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office reported.
O.C. Billings of Harmony faces seven charges, ranging from first-degree rape to possession of drug paraphernalia, and is in the Iredell County Detention Center in lieu of a $225,000 bond.
Billings has an extensive criminal history, dating back 20 years, and many of the offenses involved sexual conduct with children. The victim in this case, said Capt. Darren Campbell, is an adult.
She called the sheriff’s office early Thursday morning from Billings’ home on East Memorial Highway and said she’d been raped and was holding her attacker at gunpoint, Campbell.
Deputies arrived and took Billings into custody.
The woman told authorities she was able to free herself during the assault and grab the gun, which Billings earlier held on her, and strike him in the head, Campbell said.
