A man allegedly tried to kidnap a woman by chasing her into a karate studio – only to get beaten up by the Sensei. August Williams, 47, is said to have followed the woman into Bushiken Karate Charlotte Dojo in North Carolina on Thursday night. But Randall Ephraim, the head instructor at the school, was cleaning at the time. He asked Williams to leave but he refused in a tense showdown. The instructor said: “He was very strong – very, very strong – very strong powerful individual. He tried to force himself further into the dojo, aggressively pushing and swinging. “I then went into action defending myself and got him out of the dojo. Once outside he attempted to attack again and was dealt with accordingly.” Williams was rushed to hospital but was later arrested. The nature of his injuries aren’t known. Mr Ephraim told WSOCTV: “There were still some kids in the dojo being picked up by parents and a couple of adult students cleaning up when a young lady came through our doors and stated that someone was trying to harm her. “Shortly afterward, a big male entered the building. Not knowing what he wanted, I assumed he was inquiring about classes. “I asked how I could assist him and he stated that he was there for the lady. She insisted that she did not know him and tried to kidnap her.” Williams has been charged with attempted kidnapping, assault and other offences related to the incident, according to WBTV.
