Brian Teichman is a former Marine who stopped a rape in Queens, New York at the surreal hour of 9 a.m. He got a good look at the rapist’s face. Here is the composite drawing:

Teichman, 31, had stopped at the family babysitters home to drop off his daughter before taking a physics test. He arrived earlier than usual that day, and because of him, a woman was saved from the final act of rape.

In an interview with The Daily News, Teichman gave a stirring account of how he suddenly found himself coming to the aid of a stranger who had been accosted in broad daylight.

“It blows my mind that someone has the audacity to do that at 9 o’clock in the morning,” he said…

“I was in the house, and I heard some muffled screams,” he said.

Outside the window, they saw a surreal scene unfold.

“At first, it looked like they were running,” Ottaviano told The News. “When I looked closer, it looked like he was hoisting her, grabbing her, pushing her.”

“When I saw him throw her over the guardrail, that’s when I knew it wasn’t play,” added Teichman…

When he got to guardrail, Teichman said the man was “straddling her.” He had one hand over her mouth and was “ripping at her jean jacket” with the other.

Teichman said the man must have been powerful because the woman’s screams were completely muffled.

“He was strong enough to hold her mouth shut,” he said. “It was silent. I had to pause there and think, ‘Do I run after him first or do I scream first at him?'”

Teichman decided to fill the void with lots of noise.

Startled, the attacker looked up and Teichman said he got a clear look at his face.

“Then he started running down the hill,” he said. “I ran over to her.”

By that point, the attacker had already reached the highway and was running northbound along the shoulder, he said.

Within minutes, police, alerted by the babysitter, began arriving and hunting for the suspect.

Teichman said he tried to comfort the weeping woman, who spoke very little English.

If you live in the New York area, take a good look at the composite drawing. It is incredibly detailed. This guy should be behind bars soon.
