PHOENIX — A woman being sexually assaulted at a Phoenix bus stop was saved by citizen intervention, according to Phoenix police.
Court records show that on March 5 around 8 p.m., police responded to a call at a bus stop near 21st Avenue and Van Buren Street.
A woman reportedly told police that she was standing at the bus stop when a man, later identified as 38-year-old Darick Dywane Steverson, came up from behind her and placed her in a headlock.
He allegedly punched the woman and pulled her hair. Steverson then reportedly kissed and licked the woman's face, telling her, "You’re gonna have all my babies."
During the 15-minute assault, Steverson allegedly exposed and grabbed the woman's breasts while telling her, "You smell so good."
Police say a bystander heard the woman's screams and intervened, allowing the victim to escape.
The bystander reportedly told police that he saw Steverson using his body bend the woman over pinning her to the bus stop.
Stevenson is facing multiple charges including kidnapping, sexual abuse, aggravated assault and attempted sexual assault.
