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.
