Nearly Assaulted by a Lying, Pervert Taxi while leaving City Mall

I was in Citymall hanging out with my friend and it was a bit late (around 11h30 pm). I called a taxi company I trust, and as he called me back I left the mall to take it. My friend checked with him and the driver confirmed that he was the cab I called.

As I was saying goodbye to my friend I noticed a pervert look in the driver’s eyes. As soon as he drove, he took the sea side road, it looked creepy, no lights and no cars.

The driver started to lower the speed and he started to go to the right and then back to the center of the road as if he was searching for the right spot to park. I was worried and scared for a moment as it seemed he was going to pull on the right side in a deserted road so I started to think of ways to run away.

I was lucky when this happened, I receive a phone call asking where I was as the taxi I called was still waiting for me in front of the mall.

Immediately I asked him to take me back to the mall and asked to which taxi company he works. I saw disappointment on his face.

Sexually Harassed in the Service

I was young back then and didn’t know what to do. It happened with me twice the 1st time I was 15 in Zahle and the 2nd time I was 18 in Dbayeh. Both drivers made me sit in the front seat I don’t remember why, probably the back seats were taken. Both of them put their hands on my tight and kissed me on the cheek as I was getting out. Now that I think of what happened I get mad and I wish I did something about it.

Confronting a Pervert on the Bus & “Cleaning Beirut streets from human-trash!”

I was sitting on the large bus seats alone until a young man in his 20’s came and sat next to me!

It was all fine until I felt his hand is moving, so I looked down and noticed he was masturbating. Knowing myself and my bad temper, I decided to stay quiet until he speaks to me (which I’m sure he will). then suddenly he asks me if I have a tissue paper, I said no and then asked him “bcharafak, don’t feel ashamed of doing this?”

He was shocked that I actually faced him and said something about it. He said why should he be ashamed, it’s something normal for a guy to do! Oh oh, he just made a huge mistake, he got into an argument with me!!

I told him since you don’t feel ashamed then why don’t you stand up and yell it out loud, yell it to all the people on the bus, say what you’re doing -and I said this in a loud voice, and noticed the people sitting in front of us and next to us were listening.

He started asking me to lower my voice, begging to stay quiet. hahaha this will teach him to mess with the wrong girl, JARASTO on the bus.

but this was not the end of our discussion, my bad temper and womanly pride did not allow me to shut up, instead I kept on demeaning him and showing him how stupid, immature he looks and that doing this does not make him a man!

I even dared him to do this in front if his own father, mother and sister, he was shocked to hear me even say that, especially that I doubted his “man-hood” by saying if you’re a real man, you’d do that in front of your parents, and not to strangers!

I enjoyed vending my anger on him but sadly I had to get out of the bus! ah well, another day and another adventure!

I guess it’s just another day at “Cleaning Beirut streets from human-trash!”

Harassed at a Fake Job Interview

I was asked to have a job interview by the owner of of a Pharmaceutical business at 5.30pm, I went to the office and found there were no staff, the offices were all empty.

The Manager asked me to sit on the couch, me with no suspicion of anything yet did, then he sat right next to me thighs touching and his arm around me…

I was scared, knew he intented to make sex advances, took my purse and ran away terrified by it!

I saw her harassed in Dawra- but I took this picture & the guy got scared and ran away!


i was participating into the Protest against our Sectarian system on Sunday 26/2/2012 in Dawra Area .

We were waiting to start the Protest and i was taking photos around.
Suddenly i saw this man trying to stop this women . And he touched her and tried to stay infront of her by closing the street to not let her pass.

She tried to cross and pass by moving his body away from her by her hand as you can see . And when he turned, and saw me taking this photo…He turned and left , maybe scared from any kind of Reactions we will take to stop him from doing that again .

And in this way, she left too and continue walking forward and crossed the Road .

Shame on him and this stupid mentality of thinking of Women …

Sexually Assaulted & Choked by a Stranger in my car in Ramlet el Beyda while Security Guards Watched & Did Nothing

[[trigger warning]]

I was once in a parked car, in front of a building, on Ramle Bayda next to Nabihh Berre’s Residential Place. Police were Everywhere.

Anyway, i was in car waiting for a friend. who went up the building to get something from a friend. the streets were lit, and everything was okay. i didn’t have the slightest thought that something bad was about to happen. the Driver seat’s window and co-pilot’s ( mine ) were open.

i was sending a text message on my phone, when out of nowhere a man ( 40 ish ) jumped into the window, grabbed me in the neck and kissed me. i was chocking and fighting him with my hands. and he was kissing my neck and mouth, it was disgraceful.

i remember it as if it was yesterday. i started screaming with the little voice i was able to produce. no one came to my rescue. the man carried on, and then, with one hand on my neck, the other was down my skirt.

so i bit his mouth, that’s when i had a moment to fight back. and hit him with my hand on his head.

he took a step back. so i opened the door on him with all the strength i had. he started running, and i fell down and started crying. i peed myself of fear.

when my friend came down, i was on the ground. he was so angry, he went to the concierge of the builging, asking him why he didn’t do anything.

the old man said :” fakkaret bta3erfo! ” ( i thought she knew him ) SERIOUSLY?! so girl, don’t count on anyone to come to your rescue.

fight back, don’t lose control and fall for the fear of the moment. i would have loved to grab his neck in my hands. but was too scared.

thankfully i had enough strength to push him back. i almost died. he didn’t care about whether i die or not, he only cared about kissing me, while his hand on my neck was killing me.

Be aware, and be always ready for assaults like these. and rest assured, only you can help yourselves.

I told the driver: “You’ve got a sex-addict passenger who assaults women!” and he threw the guy off the bus!!

I finished work at 5:30 PM in Ashrafieh and went out looking for a cab to go back home. I spotted a bus (bus number 2) and boarded it. I thought it’s a good idea, it’ll be a direct way and i’d spare more money at the same time.

The bus was full. I sat on a small seat in the front row, next to a guy who was apparently sleeping. As the bus began moving, the guy started to wake up and more passengers came in and were standing in the bus.

I felt like the guy’s leg hit mine; I didn’t give this an importance, as it’s not the first time people’s legs hit me in buses or cabs.

But.. later that feeling became more consistent, and as i was trying to get away from the guy i noticed he was getting closer to me, and i felt something like a hard ball on my leg!!!

Then i turned my head lightly… And I saw that he was holding his d*ck and rubbing it against my leg !!! I quickly jumped off my seat and yelled at him, then reported him to the driver: “You’ve got a sex-addict passenger who assaults women!” the driver got mad, punched the guy on his face and head, and literally threw him out of the bus.

The other passengers were stunned. I kept sitting next to the driver until some seats were empty, then a lady asked me to sit next to her.

Isn’t transportation safe anymore ?!
