Rape victim wrestles gun from attacker, shoots him in face

WHIO (CBS Dayton) reported recently that a Springfield man is facing rape and kidnapping charges after police said he raped a woman by gunpoint. Investigators said the victim fought back and shot her attacker in the face.

From the article:

Duane Portman Sr., 44, was arraigned on Friday and ordered detained on a $50,000 bond.

According to county Municipal Court records, Portman was shot in the face Sunday, Sept. 2, at his business, Labelz 4 Less, by a woman who told police Portman held a gun to her head and raped her inside the business in the 1600 block of East Main Street.

She told police she was able to wrestle the gun from Portman and shoot him before she drove to Good Samaritan Hospital in Dayton for help.

Detectives interviewed Portman on Thursday after he initially told investigators he couldn't remember who shot him or where he was when he was shot. Portman was arrested based on those comments to police.

The accused rapist appeared in court a few days later with his faced bandaged.
