Cops: Victim sends attempted rapist to hospital

A man who tried to rape a woman on the streets of Hunting Park this morning ended up in the hospital himself when his intended victim fought back with a vengeance.

Around 2:25 a.m., the 43-year-old man tried to rape a 19-year-old woman on 9th Street near Lycoming, according to police.

But it was the man who got the surprise when the woman pulled out an unknown instrument and stabbed him twice in the stomach and once above the left eye, police said.

The man was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, according to police. His name and the charges he is expected to face have not yet been released.
