Officials praise the woman's instinct in this traumatizing situation. "I'm glad she fought back, which I also told my daughter to do. If anyone tries to abduct you, fight back," Officer John Lacy explained to 41 Action News. "You do not want to go with an abductor. And she did that, and I commend her."
The woman is now recovering from the attack, which has caused an increased interest in personal safety in her community. "I emailed my husband and said buy me some [pepper spray]," relayed Peggy Kaus.
Those reevaluating their personal safety have the right idea. U.S. residents ages 12 and up experienced 5.4 million violent victimizations in 2014. With crime numbers this staggering, it's important to be prepared.
