'Give me 5 mins with that demon': Nassar victim father lunges at pedophile doctor (VIDEO)

An angry father attempted to attack convicted pedophile Larry Nassar in court on Friday, just one week after the disgraced US gymnastics team doctor was sentenced to 175 years in prison for abusing scores of young women.

Randall Margraves rushed toward Nassar after his daughters gave victim-impact statements in Eaton County during day two of his final hearing, the Lansing State Journal reported.

“I would ask you, as part of the sentencing to grant me 5 minutes in a locked room with this demon; would you give me one minute?” Margraves reportedly asked.

Margraves had earlier asked to have time alone with Nassar in a locked room, but Judge Janice Cunningham denied the request.

He nevertheless launched a courtroom attack, and was restrained by security officers. As he was led away from the courtroom, he shouted: “I want that son of a bitch… give me one minute with that bastard.”

CBS Detroit reported that when Judge Cunningham told Margraves his behavior was unacceptable, he shouted back, “Well you haven’t lived through it, lady.”

Margraves later apologized for his courtroom outburst, telling reporters: "I am no hero."

Aside from Margraves’ two daughters, who gave evidence of their abuse in court, they claimed their other sister had also been molested by the former physician.

In total, Nassar has been accused of sexual abuse by 265 women. He received 40 to 175 years in jail in a separate hearing.

On Monday, Michigan police apologized to a victim who was 17 when she was abused by Nassar. They claimed Nassar “duped” them by providing a “stack” of medical explanations to refute the claim.
