CHICAGO (WKRN) – Four kids, ages six and under, saved their mother from an attempted sexual assault in their home.
According to WLS-TV, the attack happened Thursday morning during a home invasion on West 25th Street in Chicago.
The suspect reportedly entered the home around 4:40 a.m. through a window and attacked the mother while threatening to sexually assault her.
Police said the man fled when her four children woke up and interrupted the attack.
“That’s rough the kids had to wake up to something like that, it’s horrible. I don’t know what this world’s coming to now,” said Tony Torres, a neighbor.
Neighbors said the woman is married, but it was unclear if the father was home at the time of the attack.
Authorities are searching for the suspect.
