ENTERCOM Alternative KRBZ (96.5 THE BUZZ)/KANSAS CITY on-air personality AFENTRA, host of the station's "BIG FAT MORNING BUZZ," fought off an attacker on SATURDAY night, and helped police hunt down 25-year-old DERRICK JUNG, who was charged with three counts of assault, according to a report on KCTV5.COM.
AFENTRA and a friend watched JUNG attack a woman outside MISSIE B's in downtown KANSAS CITY, then jumped out of their car to stop the attack, taking pictures of the suspect and his license plate. They say he told them, "Go ahead ... the car is a rental" and it could never be traced back to him.
"He was very cocky, very arrogant. He was willing to pose in front of the license plate," AFENTRA said. "I think that angered him. Initially he was showing arrogance but that's when he hit me."
AFENTRA says she was fighting to get the man off of her, using her car keys to defend herself.
"Next thing I know he basically sucker-punched me," she said. "He was dragging me by my hair."
Within minutes after the assault, police used license plate information to track down the rental car and arrest JUNG, who was previously charged with two counts of deomstic battery, according to court records.
"I refuse to let him take mine or another woman's power away," said AFENTRA. "I'm glad we took his photo. I'm glad we took his license plate and helped the police. I'm glad he got off the streets before he could hurt or kill someone."
AFENTRA says she spoke about the topic on her radio show and shared her story with KCTV5 NEWS to hopefully help women who may be victims of domestic violence or abuse.
