Víctima De Un Ataque: Tips De Seguridad

| January 11, 2013 | 14 Comments

“As I turned up 23rd street, I noticed a man walking to me that ‘zero-ed’ in on my presence, locking eyes on me. There was no side street to turn down, and I didn’t want to turn around, exposing my back to him, so I kept walking. As we neared each other, I tried to walk around a tree quite close to the curb, before I could do so he lunged at me.

 He knew what he was doing and how to attack someone. He went first for my eye socket with his thumb and put his other hand in my mouth to stifle my screams and slammed me down to the ground. He was using the hand in my mouth and on my jaw to try and slam my head on the concrete, presumably to knock me out. Once I was down on the ground he straddled me pinning down my arms.

After about 15s of struggling just to avoid him knocking me out, I was able to use all my strength to surge up on my right side to unpin that arm. Since I’m a climber, I’m strong, and I don’t think he was expecting this and was unprepared for that maneuver. Luckily through this move and some biting, I was also able to get his hand out of my mouth and started screaming – first just yelling and then screaming for help. I struggled with him while screaming and trying to avoid him knocking me out for another 30s until a couple in a house several houses down the street threw open their window and turned on lights. This scared him away.”

Esta fue la declaración de una mujer jóven que fue atacada en frente de mi casa hace un par de días a las 2:40 am. Mi vecina escucho a la víctima pedir auxilio y rápidamente me envió un mensaje de texto a mi teléfono preguntándome si yo también podía escuchar los gritos.  No fue sino hasta la mañana siguiente que leí su mensaje. Al ver el mensaje traté de recordarme si había escuchado algo, pero me convencí que si fue así seguramente creí que estaba soñando ya que vivo en un vecindario decente y estas cosas no suelen pasar en mi cuadra.

Ayer unos detectives tocaron el timbre de mi casa y me preguntaron que si había escuchado algo esa noche. Me dolió mucho decir que no. Solo el hecho de imaginarme estar gritando por ayuda y que nadie me escuche es un pensamiento espantoso. Me siento mal por no haber estado allí para ella, por no haber escuchado nada y por no haberla de alguna forma auxiliado. Tanto así que esta madrugada abrí mis ojos exactamente a las 2:40 am y no me pude volver a dormir.

La noche del ataque yo también caminé tarde a mi casa pero no caminé sola. Quién se iba a imaginar que a penas dos horas después esto pasaría frente a mi casa. Le conté la noticia a una amiga y lo primero que me dijo fue ¨te pudo haber pasado a ti.¨

Ese hombre aún anda suelto.

 

Moraleja: Le puede pasar a cualquiera y en donde sea. Cuidate.

Por favor tomar nota de estos tips de seguridad:

“THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” (PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. it may save a life.)

 

It seems that a lot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a situation. Everyone should read this especially each and every girl in this world.

A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women whose clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.

3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.

4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.

5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.

6] Number three is public restrooms.

7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.

8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.

9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.

10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.

 

POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:

1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.

2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.

3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.

4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh – HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.

5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.

6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, and go with your instincts. You may feel little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

    Sofia, this is no laughing matter. En frente de tu casa! Be vigilant. If for one second you think you’re being paranoid, YOU’RE NOT. Ten mucho cuidado, Amiga, and thank you for the reminder. I need to cut the cord on the cell phone.

    • sofia

      Yes, better not check your phone every 5 seconds while walking on the st and def not at night.
