WILLOUGHBY, Ohio – 20-year-old Rick Adams will be back in a Willoughby Municipal Courtroom later this month on assault charges.
Adams was arrested March 21 when he assaulted a 17-year-old who he says was molesting a child in a home in Eastlake.
“I kinda blacked out,” Adams said in an interview with the FOX 8 I-Team. “I saw a 17-year-old molesting a 5-year-old. I wanted to help the young boy and that was all I was thinking about was getting it stopped.”
The 17-year-old was also arrested and charged with rape.
Another court will decide whether the teen will be charged as an adult.
Rick Adams is scheduled to be back in court April 10.
