The third story happenned in Chicago.
A young lady left her job at a bar at 2 a.m., got in a cab, and when it pulled away, the man attacked her. “He came out of nowhere,” Elizabeth said. “All of the sudden, I’m attacked from behind and pushed down.”
She was very courageous, and I give her a lot of credit for doing that,” said Chicago police Sgt. Debra DeYoung. Elizabeth urged everyone to buy a can of pepper spray and have it at the ready. “Go and buy mace,” she said. “When you have it, and you get out and you know you’re going to be outside alone, physically have it in your hand ready. Because if I hadn’t had it ready, it would have been in my bag –what’s the use of having it?”
