A woman chased down a man who exposed himself to her as she was jogging and pinned him to the ground before he escaped.
Massachusetts State Police are now looking to identify the man who allegedly flashed the woman, known only as Aia, as she was out for her morning jog on July 18.
Surveillance footage obtained from the area at the time of the incident shows Aia stop, turn around and pursue the man before attempting to physically detain him.
Aia who is 6’1″ and served in the Israeli military, said she held the man on the ground for a few minutes and yelled for help, but no one came to her aid.
The jogger explained:
Where I come from and how I grew up, we don’t just walk by. We don’t just ignore it, because I have a daughter and it could be my daughter next to him and she’s not going to be that.
If you want to call it bravery for what I did, yeah, it’s for the ones after me.
The man eventually got away and fled the area, police said – but not before Aia ‘put the fear of God in him’, as per a state police spokesperson.
