According to Gonzalez, the men pulled the attacker off, and when he turned to attack the martial arts instructors they used their training to stop the man and pin him down.


The deputies were able to get attempted sexual assault charges and unlawful detention charges on behalf of the woman, and an assault charge on behalf of the instructors.

"Thank you to the Yong-In dojo for your quick action in protecting others," Sheriff Gonzalez said.
