After a grueling day training for a marathon, Kelly Herron stepped inside a restroom. Just as she was washing and drying her hands, she noticed a man with his face covered coming up behind her.
As the man lunged at 36-year-old Herron, she immediately went into fight mode. He threw her on the ground and repeatedly attempted to turn her over on her stomach.
“It’s a full on fight. As woman you are conditioned to know that that is how a man rapes you,” Herron said, according to DudeComedy.com. “Thank God for a pair of good compression pants.”
What the attempted rapist didn’t know was that Herron had completed a course in self defense offered by her job – just 3 weeks earlier.
Time stopped. I remembered what the instructor said in class, which was to hit with the side of my hands…Hard bones in soft fleshy places. I realized this doesn’t have to be a fair fight,” Herron said. “I had one hand to use so I just started clawing his face and punching him in the face with the side of my hand.”
The young woman eventually jammed her attacker in a bathroom stall. The police arrested Gary Steiner – a registered sex offender – on the scene. He has been charged with attempted second degree rape and assault.
As for Herron, she stated:
“All I kept screaming during the attack was ‘not today mother f***er. I was screaming it like an animal. It was the most vicious savage part of my being. There was no way I was going to let this guy rape me.”
Good for her. But FYI progressives, this is why we don’t want men in the ladies room!
