Teen fights off would-be rapist

WICHITA — Police are investigating a report that a 13-year-old girl fought off a would-be rapist in north Wichita on Wednesday afternoon.

The girl reported that a man pulled a knife on her and grabbed her by the arm near 18th and Jackson shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday, police records indicate.

The man walked her down an alley and pulled her to the ground, the girl told police. He removed her belt and unzipped his pants, but she was able to grab a rock and hit him in the head with it.

He then took off, running west. The girl suffered minor abrasions but was otherwise uninjured.

A detailed description of the suspect has not been released.
