“On the street across from my home, a guy tried to sexually assault me. I fought back. I chased him down. He swung at me so he could run away. Unfortunately for me, that swing split open my lip. I now have 11 stitches, inside and outside my mouth.
“I am angry. Angry because I didn’t catch him. Because every day he’s free means one more girl he can assault. And those girls may not fight back.
“Sexual assault is not a joke and it happens everyday and anywhere to anyone. Please look out for the girl or guy on the street in the distance, for they may be too afraid to fight back.”
While we applaud Kim for her bravery, we wouldn’t recommend anyone else follow what she did. Stay safe guys!
