Rottweiler honoured for stopping Coventry sex attacker

A hero dog which was praised by a judge after he chased off a sex attacker who indecently assaulted a woman will today receive TWO bravery awards.
Two-year-old rottweiler Jake was on his usual evening walk with owner Liz Maxted-Bluck, 49, when he heard screaming from a dense woodland and ran to investigate.
He found sex beast Esmahil Adhami, 18, molesting a woman he had dragged into the undergrowth.
The fearless hound lunged at the illegal immigrant and chased him away – and then circled the sobbing victim ”like a guard dog” until the police arrived.
Jake, a former rescue dog with the RSPCA, was commended for his actions by a judge who jailed Iranian-born Adhami for four years after he was convicted of sexual assault in March.
Sentencing at Warwick Crown Court, Judge Christopher Hodson said: ”I have not the slightest doubt that if that dog had not come bounding up, worse would have happened to that lady.”
Today (Sat) Jake will be officially recognised for his actions when he is presented with an animal bravery award at a special ceremony organised by the RSPCA.
He will be guest of honour at Shrewsbury Football Club where he will receive an award for preventing a life-threatening situation and a medallion for his alertness to danger.
