A Chicago man is being hailed as a hero for running down a man suspected of assaulting a jogger along the lakefront.
Michael Adams says he was driving south on Lake Shore Drive near the Jackson Park harbor Wednesday afternoon when he saw the man attack the female jogger.
"I saw a girl running and a guy with jeans close to her with his hands going toward her, so I figured something ain't right," Adams said. "They were wrestling on the ground and she tried to get away and he reached and grabbed her neck. She told the police he was trying to touch all her private parts.
Adams got out of his car and yelled at the man to stop running. He eventually chased him down and held him on the ground -- along with some other bystanders -- until police arrived.
The suspect was identified as 24-year-old Brandon Williams of Calumet Park, a registered sex offender. He was charged with once count of criminal sexual abuse, but police are looking into whether he may be responsible for other assaults.
Adams doesn't consider himself a hero. It's what he was taught.
"From being in the Marines, they tell you to live to a higher standard," Adams said.
