Child Safety Situation #20

Girl, 17 years old; abducted while walking home from school.

In 1998, while a 17-year-old girl was walking home from high school, a car stopped beside her. A man jumped out of the back seat and dragged the surprised teenager into the back seat. The driver took off. The man in the backseat kissed her neck and ripped her shirt.

She worked her hand into her purse, found a pen, and stabbed him in the neck with it. When he reared back, she opened the door, jumped out, and rolled onto the grass beside the road. The car sped off, as cars behind her began to honk and stop. Although she broke her arm and skinned her knees, she happily told reporters, "That's a lot better than being raped and killed or given an incurable disease."

What can you learn from her story to make you more predator resistant?

Fight Back:
Look for a way to back the predator off long enough for you to leap away. Fighting back right away, may save your life. Had this young woman not been so aggressive and bold, she certainly would have been raped. One young teen kicked his assailant in the shin. Another tripped him. Remember you may be fighting for your life. This is not simply an argument. Do you want to risk letting the predator decide whether to let you go alive after he finishes with you? What if killing you is the ultimate act of controlling you, the climax of his attack on you? What if he decides he will be safer if he kills you, the witness to what he has done? Unexpected force has freed kids from guys a lot bigger. One 16-year-old girl bit through her abductor's lip.
