"One of the women sustained minor injuries. Both ladies were shaken and very upset by this incident having been attacked in this cowardly way.

Three Things You Can Do To Stay Safe...

  • Scream - Attackers do not want attention. Make as much noise as possible to alert people around you. Think about buying an attack alarm if you are worried.
  • Run - Get away from the attacker. Always run towards other people and busy areas. Do not head for anywhere isolated or down an alley. The attacker will want you to be alone.
  • Distract - Do something that distracts the attacker to allow you to get away. That might include stamping on their foot or kicking their shins. If you are worried think about having self-defence lessons.
