A Marine Corps veteran prevented a man from nearly kicking a woman to death early Tuesday in Milwaukee, and Wisconsin’s concealed carry law made his efforts possible.

According to Fox6now Milwaukee, Charlie Blackmore was driving home from work at 4:00 a.m. along Lincoln Avenue when he saw something on the sidewalk. Blackmore didn’t realize it was a woman on the ground being kicked in the head and stomach until he got closer.

He then jumped out of his car and sprung into action.

Blackmore held his gun on the suspect and called West Allis police. He says several times while waiting for police to arrive, the attacker moved toward him.
