Police say Ohio deer saves woman from assault



Published: Tue, February 28, 2012 @ 11:15 a.m.

OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a woman under assault got some crucial help from a darting deer.

Police in this western Ohio college town say a man was choking her with her purse straps and punching her in the forehead when a deer jumped up and raced past, scaring the man away.

Sgt. Jon Varley said the incident happened early Sunday after the woman left a party. He tells The Cincinnati Enquirer he can’t recall anything similar in his 17-year career.

He says the woman suffered red marks and bruises but didn’t require medical treatment. None of her property was taken when the man ran away.

Ok, I have to...

Based on the headline - how do they know this deer was from Ohio? Did he have ID?
