The world can be a dangerous place and women are more often the target for assaults. In the past four months police have reported two sexual attacks in the Foothills area. Early Sunday morning on the corner of 5th and Tabor police responded to a report of kidnapping and sexual assault. RCMP say the woman pulled into the gas station to fix a tire. A man offered to help her but when the tire couldn’t be fixed, he gave her a ride home. The victim told police he missed several turns and pulled into a parking lot where he sexually assaulted her. The victim was able to fend him off and escape on foot. The Prince George Community Police say that there are ways to avoid situations like these. They suggest not wearing headphones, traveling in groups of people and always carrying a cellphone. Bally Basi of the Prince George Elizabeth Fry Society suggests that it’s important for women to keep the conversation going about how to stay safe so that it’s not uncomfortable for people to talk about. The owner of Kaiten Mixed Martial Arts Academy, Karmjeet Manhas says that if a situation comes to putting up a fight, it’s best to aim for the eyes and throat instead of relying on brute strength. Regardless of the situation, it’s most important to stay aware of what’s going on and being alert in case of emergency.
