Martha McSally, former AZ senator, reportedly sexually assaulted while on a jog

A frightening incident occurred in Iowa recently that involved an alleged sexual assault against former Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ). 

According to Fox News, McSally  said while she was on a jog in Iowa, a man "engulfed" her before "fondling" her. McSally has gone on record in the past regarding her status as a rape survivor.

The former senator detailed the harrowing account in an Instagram post over the weekend.

Fox News noted:

She said she was running along the river when a man came from behind her and "engulfed me." She noted that she was slated to speak in Omaha, Nebraska, about "courage and heart, and how to be a brave heart."

"And I just had it put to the test," McSally said. "A man came up behind me, and he engulfed me in a bear hug, and he molested and fondled me until I fought him off."

She added, "I ran after him, I threw my water bottle at him, and I chased him into the brush, where he was then hiding as I called 911 and waited for the police to come. I don't think they found him."

Fox News added:

The incident occurred just before 10:55 a.m. in Council Bluffs, Iowa, near the Tom Hanafan River’s Edge Park by the Interstate 480 overpass, the Council Bluff's Police Department said.

In a late-breaking update, a suspect was arrested over the weekend, according to a press release from local police.

"Utilizing surveillance video and other investigative means, detectives have identified Dominic M. HENTON of Papillion, NE as a suspect in the assault on Senator Martha McSally that occurred on 11-08-2023 in Council Bluffs, IA," the press release noted.

It added, "During the evening hours on 11-09-2023, an arrest warrant was issued charging HENTON with one count of Assault with Intent to Commit Sexual Abuse."

Luckily, the former senator didn't suffer any serious injuries from the otherwise horrific attack. She said she'll now work on processing what happened.

"I will do that in time," McSally said. "In this case, I felt like I took my power back. He tried to take power from me, but I turned it on him, and he was running from me instead of the other way around."

In her social media post, McSally addressed Denton, saying, "you picked the wrong target."
