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.

Flashed… “In broad daylight, and while I was in my own car!”

While I was caught in traffic on one of the busiest streets in Hamra (during the day), a man was walking in the opposite direction and on the driver’s side. I was looking straight ahead, but happened to glance at him by chance. When he made sure I looked at him, he took his penis out of his zipper, as if waiting for me to see it and react. I felt disgusted. In broad daylight, and while I was in my own car!

Molested on the public bus… by the DRIVER

I was taking a public bus down to Jbail on a sunny Wednesday in the middle of the day (between 12am and 1pm) to go to the beach. Just for the record – I was wearing a black/grey cotton dress with black 3/4 leggings, a black vest with short sleeves and sandals. After telling the driver where I wanted to get off and gesturing towards where I was planning to go he offered to drive me to the other side of the highway as it seemed that he was going back to Beirut after his stop there.

The last person got off where I was planning to as well but I thought there is no harm in accepting his offer. So I thought.. A minute later, when we had stopped, I climbed back from the front seat to go towards the door and tried to open it. – Sitting in the front seat of a public bus. Something I am most likely never to do again! – In an attempt to help as the door didn’t open, the bus driver fiddled with it.

Whilst exchanged places with me in this very small corridor of the bus to – apparently – get a better grip at the door, he slightly touched my bum. A second later the door was open and I left immediately.

When I turned around however, he had his hand in his open trousers working on his Willy and grinning at me with the most disgusting smile I had ever seen. The last thing missing was his saliva dropping out of his mouth. Absolutely disgusted and shocked to the bones, I slowly walked away from the bus, not knowing what to do with myself.

After I had stepped down into the streets of Jbail, just off the highway, I looked up and the bus was gone. It took me a few hours to recover from this experience as well as to pull myself together and start the journey back to Beirut in another public bus. This time, I made sure to follow two other women getting on a semi-filled bus and to sit further in the back.

“Why do I have to be the one to just keep walking while you do all the talking?! Ask your mother, ask your sister if they appreciate it!”

I was walking home alone from a friend’s place after a night out. I wasn’t wearing anything that could provoke any reaction, simple black (not revealing) top, jeans, and I had already switched from my heels to flats.

I guess simply because it was late and I was a girl on the street, as a car with a few guys in it passed by they made kissing noises at me. It irritated me, and I was feeling particularly ballsy at that moment, so when the car right behind that one drove by and the driver slowed down and shouted, “bonsoir!” at me, I gave him the finger and kept walking. He began to follow me in the car for a block or two, and I was getting nervous and more angry.

I turned and shouted “FUCK OFF!” at him. He stopped the car and got out, “Wait! Why did you do that?”

I angrily turned around: “Don’t you have a mom or a sister?! Do you like it when other men on the street harass them?! Treat me like you would treat your mom or your sister!”

“You’re right, but my mother or sister wouldn’t make that gesture towards me. If they dont like it when someone says something to them, they just keep walking. I was just going to tell you that you are pretty, but the gesture it’s not funny.” he said.

I replied: “But it doesnt make me feel pretty, you would say that to any girl who is walking down the street late at night. And why do you get to be the one to say something, and I just have to put up with it?! Why do I have to be the one to just keep walking while you do all the talking?! Ask your mother, ask your sister if they appreciate it! I just want to be treated like you would treat them!”

He said, “Ok, you are right, you are right, but you dont need to make that gesture….So, can I have your number?”

“NOOO!!!”

Unbelievable.

“It’s not such a nice feeling when you suspect a car is following you…”

I was walking down the street with a friend, and a car was driving down the side of the road really slowly. I first thought that the person driving (I never really saw who) wanted to park, so I didn’t think much of it.

When I realized he was not stopping, it started to concern me. It’s not such a nice feeling when you suspect a car is following you. We ignored him (I’m assuming it’s a he) and picked up our pace. He didn’t bother continuing his little game…

“You’re being inappropriate, get back in your car.”

My roommates and I were walking to a party around 10 pm. A guy in a car pulled up and tried to talk to us. We ignored him and continued walking. He kept on saying “I just have one question”. Finally he drove off and we thought it was done, but he had just gone around the block. He started to follow us again. He then abruptly stopped the car in the road and got out and started walking towards us. I’m a pretty small person, but both of my rommmates are younger than me and I feel responsible for them. So as he started towards us, I told him in a firm and loud voice “You’re being inappropriate, get back in your car.” He kept trying to talk but I kept repeating that phrase till finally he stopped, got back in his car and drove off. It was pretty ridiculous to talk to a grown man like he was a four-year-old I was scolding, but it worked. Getting out of your car and basically running at a group of women? Grow up.
