Gary man cited in attack on woman after leaving Elbow Room :: Lake County :: Post-Tribune

Gary man cited in attack on woman :: Lake County :: Post-Tribune: "Royal Leon Logan, 64, of 275 Van Buren Street, faces a maximum 50-year prison sentence if convicted of the charges filed Monday in Lake Superior Court in Crown Point.

'I'm dying of cancer. I'm 65 years old, and you're going to die, too,' Logan is quoted in court records as saying after he put a gun to the woman's side at 12:45 a.m. Saturday at 25th Avenue and Adams Street in Gary. The woman had just left the Elbow Room when she noticed Logan following her.

Logan is charged with forcing the woman into his car, then driving her to his home, where he ordered her to undress and said he was going to rape her. When she didn't comply fast enough, Logan cocked the gun. She took off her boots, then fled from the home, where he fired two shots that whizzed past her head, court records state.

As she was climbing fences and railroad embankments to escape, he was following in his car.
