He’s lucky his nephew let him live.
A suspected rapist was severely beaten by his nephew while being arrested by police.
William Mattson, 52, was being interviewed by detectives at the property in Conway, South Carolina, when his alleged victim’s boyfriend – also his nephew – attacked.
Mattson was left with two black eyes, a bleeding lip, and cuts all over his face.
He was then charged with first degree sexual assault for the alleged attack on New Year’s Eve.
According to a police report read by Myrtle Beach Online, Mattson assaulted the girl in the room she shares with her boyfriend after she returned home from a party.
The nephew walked in to find Mattson on top of his girlfriend, the police report claims, and dragged him off her.
After striking him repeatedly, driving him out of the house, the nephew called police.
It was as he gave his statement to officers that Mattson returned to tell his side of the story.
