John Wesley Patton, 54, was arrested after allegedly trapping the woman in his home, forcing her into oral sex then chasing her with a knife after she bit his genitals
A woman in Louisiana fended off an alleged rapist by biting his genitals after he forced her to perform oral sex on him when he couldn’t get aroused enough to rape her.
John Wesley Patton, 54, was arrested on Saturday in Westwego, Louisiana.
According to his alleged victim, who has not been identified, Patton trapped her in his home on Friday night after convincing her to visit so that she could meet his sister.
The pair met on the dating website Plenty of Fish and had been speaking for about a week before agreeing to meet face-to-face.
When the woman arrived at his home, he beckoned her into a hallway where he said his sister was waiting.
He then put one hand over her mouth, she said, and dragged her into a bedroom where he demanded sex.
Terrified that she would be hurt if she did not comply, the woman agreed but Patton was not aroused enough to perform.
She seized her opportunity to escape, biting him in the genitals then fleeing as he winced in pain.
Once she got out of the bedroom, however, she realized all the doors in the houses had been locked.
With no key to unlock them, she then evaded Patton, she said, for hours as he chased her around the house with a kitchen knife.
