An man in the Uptown neighborhood saved a woman from an assault early Sunday morning.
Tim Schawbow was getting home from work in the 4400 block of North Sheridan Rd around 1:30 a.m.
“I heard a woman yelling for help and came downstairs,” he said. “I saw a guy on top of her. I called the police once I realized what was going on. And when the police got here he tried taking off and I ended up taking him to the ground. “
Police stepped in to grab the suspect and took him into custody.
The woman was just coming home herself when she was attacked on the sidewalk.
On an Uptown neighborhood facebook page, Tom is being praised for his actions and coming to the aide of the victim. She is certainly roughed up but her life spared, because someone she didn’t even know until now, took a stand.
