A man riding a bus was a hero two weeks ago when another passenger allegedly threatened a woman and began walking toward the other woman with a knife.
Enoch Frederick Harrison, a 46 year old Chicago man, interceded and stopped the woman, allowed all the passengers to exit the bus and held the alleged offender until the Oak Lawn Police arrived on the scene at 95th and Kostner.
The female victim told police officers that she was riding the bus when another woman, Sierra Singleton, entered the bus in the 4400 block of 95th Street. When the bus began moving, the victim claimed that Singleton started to walk toward her with a knife in her right hand stating that she was going to kill the victim.
Harrison, who was riding the bus from the Chicago Ridge Mall, witnessed the confrontation and said he saw Singleton take a knife out of her right hand pocket. According to Harrison, Singleton started to walk toward the female victim stating, “I’m going to kill you b….”.
Harrison jumped into action, grabbed Singleton and restrained her by holding her in a bear hug. The remaining passengers were able to leave the bus while Harrison held Singleton.
The police arrived on the scene and allege that Singleton was still saying “I’m going to kill you”. The police ordered Singleton to lie down on the ground and she complied. Singleton was charged with Aggravated Assault and taken into custody. Singleton, a 21 year old black woman, provided a Chicago address to the police. Singleton was given a court date of October 27th.
