Woman Shoots Man in the Face After He Allegedly Raped Her

By  | 

A man has pleaded not guilty to trying to rape a woman and kidnap her.  But it appears that he might be trying to press charges of his own after the woman shot him in the face.  Duane Portman of Springfield, Ohio, was arraigned on $50,000 bond after an incident that might serve as a warning to anyone seeking to mess with a seemingly defenseless woman.

According to the records in Municipal County Court, the alleged victim shot Portman in the face on September 2nd of this year. The woman told police that the man held a gun to her head and raped her inside his business.

The woman claims that she was able to fight to get the gun away from the man and shoot him, after which she drove to the Good Samaritan Hospital for help.

The man originally said he couldn’t remember who shot him or where.  After hearing his side of the story, they decided to make an arrest.

    They really need to make tassels for keeping your gun around your neck when engaging in such activities. See what happens when untrained people get their hands on guns? I mean, how did this woman manage to shoot him in the eye? Everyone knows that you aim for the chest. WOMEN should not be allowed to use guns – PERIOD!

    Out of this entire article Roger Brown you felt it most important to discuss the fact that she shot him in the eye and not in the chest and for that reason women should not be allowed to use guns?! Please explain the logic behind that statement. He held her at gunpoint,rapped her, she fought to get control of the gun and shot at him once, and where that bullet decided to go was more than likely not on her mind at the time. He’s lucky she wasn’t so pissed off and violated that she didn’t empty the clip into him. She should not face any charges because she was protecting herself to the best of her ability.

      Eugene C Kennedy: Please tell me where you read that she took him to the hospital? I believe it says that she drove herself to the hospital. If she would have taken him to the hospital, that wouldn’t have been honorable, that would have been stupid.

    Mr. Roger Brown, you definitely have so misplaced issues, prayerfully you’ll get some help, I hate to think you have come this far in life with such a twisted mind.

    Not understanding why she was arrested. I wish I could be on that jury I wouldn’t convict her. I would help pay her legal fees if I could. It’s a damn shame the way you can be arrested for protesting your self. She should have aimed for the other head.
