On Sunday, police in Englewood, NJ, arrested the man suspected of trying to rape a woman who was jogging with her baby last week in New York City's Fort Tryon Park.
The suspect, Oscar Ruiz, 35, reportedly ran up behind the victim, grabbed her in a bear hug and dragged her to the ground.
Ruiz threatened the woman with a broken bottle as he tried to rape her, according to police.
However, this victim was no easy mark...
33-year-old Jane Jarman, grabbed a bicycle pump from the stroller and used it to repeatedly strike Ruiz in the head.
With blood streaming down his face, the suspect fled the scene.
The baby stroller was knocked over in the melee, but Jarman's 8-month-old baby boy was unharmed.
ABC-TV described the frightening attack:
"I just kept going. Nothing was going through my head except hit him hit him hit him," adds Jarman.
Jarman adds, "I was protecting him for sure. I was not going to go down like that. I was protecting him with my life. I was prepared to kill this man."
Ruiz has been charged with being a fugitive from justice and is currently being held in the Bergen County Jail on an immigration detainer.
He is expected to be extradited back to New York this week, where he will be charged with attempted rape, among other charges.
