The father told KIRO Radio's "Ron and Don Show" that he was with his two daughters when a man came out of nowhere and hugged one of his daughters from the back.

"He then put her on the ground and that's when I started moving and went after him to push him off," he told KIRO Radio. "He was much bigger than I was. He ended up removing my daughter's pants and underpants. That's when I went into really crazy mode and was able to somehow push him off."
