Victim’s Surprising Response to Attack
ELYRIA, Ohio — The blow was sudden and brutal, and the response, surprising.
An Elyria woman who lives on Lake Avenue answered her door Monday evening to find a strange man.
He punched her in the face with a closed fist then immediately left, according to a report from the Elyria Police Department.
It knocked out the victim’s tooth.
But she told police that tooth was supposed to be removed by the dentist anyway, and called the assault a “blessing in disguise.”
The woman was advised to keep police updated on any other suspicious activity.
