Suspect charged after shoeless Good Samaritan stops sex assault

Suspect Ledarius Johnson, 18

There was no time to put on his shoes. So he ran out in socks.

An East Humboldt Park man is being called a hero after he helped save a 47-year-old woman from a sex assault.
DNAInfo says it happened Monday night in the 2600-block of West Chicago.

The attacker reportedly followed the woman off a bus, pushed her to the ground and tried to assault her.

A neighbor heard her screams, ran out in socks and chased the suspect down for police.

Ledarius Johnson, 18, faces one count of criminal sex abuse.
