Around 3:30 a.m. on 31 March 2015, a recently homeless African-American man named Ketrell Ferguson witnessed a rape attempt in Washington D.C. The woman was screaming, and she was trying to fight off a man. Mr. Ferguson said that he grabbed a stick. He added about the alleged rapist, “As soon as he lifted his head up, I smacked him with the stick, hard as I could in his head. And he fell off the lady, stumbled, stumbled and I smacked him again. And I just kept smacking him with the stick, I mean, as hard as I could.” After fighting off the man, he went to a building and asked someone there to call the police. An arrest was made. Mr. Ferguson said, “Even though I’m going through hard times, God put me in a place where I could help. I was at the right place at the right time.” He added that he had to do something — he has family members who have been raped.
