Rushing inside to save his wife, Lyft driver Mamadou Diallo caught up with her attacker, Earl Nash, fracturing his skull with a tire iron as Nash tried to fight back with his belt, according to a report via the NY Daily News.

Nash, 43, described as a career criminal, slipped into the apartment building around 10 p.m. on Monday by following a resident in, according to PIX11.

Nash was running from the Diallo apartment when the 61-year-old husband arrived. He ran into the building after a desperate phone call for help from his wife while she was being attacked, sources said.

“While it was going on, I was thinking I was going to die,” Nenegale Diallo told the Daily News about the ordeal that left her naked and terrified in the hallway.

Nash hit her in the head with a chair, dropped his pants, and tore off all her clothes. when Nenegale offered him money, he reportedly said: ‘I don’t wan’t money. I’m going to rape you.’

As police arrested her husband, neighbors in the building defended Diallo’s response to the attack on his 51-year-old wife.

“He has a right to defend his wife,” said a neighbor. “What are you going to do if somebody comes in and tries to rape your wife?”

Mamadou Diallo has been charged with manslaughter for killing his wife’s attacker.
