WATCH: Two Hikers Attack Man After He Reportedly Tries To Rape Woman

Two Los Angeles-area hikers are being lauded as heroes after they tackled and punched a man who attacked a woman walking her dog.

An unnamed woman was walking her dog Saturday morning near Canyon Park, Los Angeles, when Dejan Sebastian attempted to sexually assault her, ABC 7 reported.

“He grabbed her and sort of threw her to the ground and then tried to actually take off her pants,” witness Bryce Bonn told the television station.

Two unnamed witnesses responded to the woman’s screams, punching Sebastian and restraining him until police arrived.

This weekend, 21-year-old Sebastian was being held on $100,000 bail, according to ABC 7.
