James Ransone kicks rapist ass

Dressed in pajamas and armed with a metal bar, James scared the guy off, eventually chasing him down and beating him a few times.

“There was something in her voice,” he relates. So he grabbed a broomstick which he later dropped for a metal bar, called 911 and ran downstairs “in my pajama bottoms – no shoes, no socks and no shirt,” Ransone says.

He got to the vestibule in the nick of time. “There was this Hispanic guy in a blue sweatshirt choking my neighbor and pulling his [sex organ] out,” he told Page Six’s Lisa Marsh. “I pictured my mom, my girlfriend and every girl I’ve ever loved and thought, ‘Vengeance is mine.’ ”

“I looked north and south and saw him running,” Ransone recalls. As he ran after the attacker, he passed a friend walking his dog and called for him to join in the chase. “I screamed, ‘Follow me! This girl almost got raped!’ “

Ransone caught up with the assailant as he entered a building on Allen Street. He broke a glass door to get at the perp and then cracked him on the back with the metal bar.

“I said, ‘You rapist piece of [bleep]’ and heard a crack when I hit his shoulder blade,” Ransone says. “He mimed taking out a gun and said, ‘Do you want to go to jail?’ – and made a bee-line for the door.

“I cried, ‘I’m not done with you yet’ and kept swinging,” Ransone says. Then the cops arrived and the attacker disappeared into the building. An arrest is expected soon.

It’s stories like this that remind me not all celebrities live in their own fantasy world. For every Britney Spears and Sharon Stone, there’s a James Ransone who chases down criminals and excessively beats them with metal bars.
