It's a pretty grizzly story, but thank god for an alert mom and restaurant patrons that helped contain the assailant after he got caught...
According to WLS-TV, an 8-year-old girl and her mom went into the public bathroom at Jason's Deli in Chicago's South Loop on May 7, 2016.
As mom was in one stall, police records show that 33-year-old Reese Hartstirn (pictured above) walked into the bathroom -- clearly marked for women -- approached the young girl, choked her until she passed out, and tried locking her in the stall next to her mother, presumably to finish whatever he started. Before she passed out, her mom heard the daughter scream, ran out, and grabbed her.
Besides being charged with aggravated kidnapping of a child, aggravated battery of a child, and battery causing bodily harm, he was also charged with aggravated assault of a cop after he attempted to attack his arresting officer.
Good news though, Hartstirn is -- by all accounts -- a straight-identifying white male. Not a devious and truculent transexual trying to sneak into public bathrooms to take peaks at uptight dicks and vaginas.
