Three good Samaritans came to the rescue of a young girl who was being raped by a man, police in Missouri said.

Springfield police were called after the 3 men heard a girl screaming and found the 14-year-old child being raped in a dark path.

The friends were exiting their car at a Greenway Trail near Wilson’s Creek on Thursday night, when they heard the girl screaming for help, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The three friends followed the sounds of the screams using a cellphone as a flashlight until they found the man, who was later identified as 22-year-old Christopher Muller, wearing only his boxers and laying on top of the girl.

The men rushed to the girl’s aid and took Muller off her. They detained him until the police arrived.

Police arrested Muller, and he was charged with a rape or attempted rape and attempted rape of a minor. He is being held in the Greene County Jail on $250,000 bond.
