It was 2:30 a.m. when the woman heard a cry for help from the apartment next door.
She quickly ran across the hall to see what was happening.
When she got to the other apartment she saw a man sexually assaulting her 48 year old neighbor. The man swung a chain at the rescuer.
The woman picked up a sledgehammer and chucked it at the bad guy.
She missed but it was all the convincing he needed to stop his attack and run.
Police later caught the man and he’ll be charged with attempted rape and aggravated battery.
Cops say the man was a “friend” of the woman who was attacked and had been let in the room by the victim.
