A Garden Grove man is in Orange County Jail after he allegedly abducted a woman at gunpoint, fired a shot at another woman who tried to help her and then attempted to rape the first woman before she escaped and called police. Joseph Schaning, 24, was arrested outside his apartment, at Balboa Avenue and Laguna Street, and charged with attempted murder, kidnaping, assault with a deadly weapon and attempted rape. According to police, the 19-year-old victim, whose name was withheld, was moving out of her apartment in the same complex at about 1:30 p.m. when Schaning pointed a handgun at her and ordered her to go to his apartment. When a neighbor, Josefina Sanguiano 28, tried to intervene, Schaning allegedly fired a shot at her.
