Whoever said that fighting back at a rapist will probably create more problems for the victim might want to rethink this idea. How disabling can a bite to the rapist’s neck be when the biter is a human?
I mean, we’re not talking about a dog biting the man. When it comes to biting, humans are pathetic when compared to other animals. Yet a human bite was scary enough to frighten off the man who was sexually assaulting the woman who bit him on the neck, says an article at thedenverchannel.com.
The incident occurred at 1 a.m. in Eagle County after the victim left a party and was walking home. During the struggle, the woman managed to plant a good bite on the attacker’s neck, sending him running.
Points to Reflect Upon
- Never walk home alone late at night (or anywhere). See if someone at the party will accompany you—someone you know.
- Or, prior to going to a party, arrange a ride home.
- If nobody is available to drive you home, call a cab; get the number of a cab company ahead of time and make sure they are operating at the time you think you’ll be leaving the party.
- Never take your eyes off your drink at a party. You just never know whether or not someone will slip the “date rape” drug in there.
- If you foresee you’ll be walking home alone, don’t get drunk. And bring with you pepper spray. Hold your keys between your fingers.
- If you’re being attacked, there are many things you can do to escape. The man in this case had earrings. Pulling down on one, let alone two, will surely send an assailant packing. And I don’t mean tugging, but with enough force to rip the earring through his ear, tearing the ear. It’s extremely likely he’ll release you and holler in pain, hand to his torn earlobe. And that’s your escape window.
