Unfortunately, the city streets are not very safe - attacks on people happen regularly. Even if you are a young fragile girl, even a middle-aged man, no one is safe from meeting a robber in a dark alley. And it is better to know in advance what to do in such a situation.
Always assess your strength adequately. Surely, even from school physical education lessons, you are well aware of your strengths and weaknesses: do you know how to run fast, throw your legs high, or do you have strong hands. Indeed, in the event of an emergency, you will have to take advantage of your well-developed qualities.
If you are attacked, and you run perfectly, or are already close to your entrance, you can simply break free and run away. Keep in mind, however, that the sight of a fleeing victim may trigger a hunting instinct in your attacker. Therefore, use this method only if you are completely confident in your abilities.
If there is a chance that you will be heard, shout. Unfortunately, cries for help cannot always find their addressee, so it is better to shout the notorious "Fire!" In addition, even if the residents of the adjacent houses are afraid to come out to help you, you have a chance that some old woman will call the police and complain that there is a noise in the yard.
Do something unexpected that can overwhelm the attacker. Screaming, run to meet him, throw your handbag (car keys, bag with groceries) into him.
If you are brave and confident enough, you can fight back the offender. Spread your fingers and poke the attacker in the eye (spread your fingers in case the robber tries to dodge - at least one finger will hit). Use the items at hand to protect yourself - keys, stiletto heels. But it is better not to use the notorious blow to the groin - it will only anger the attacker.
Fortunately, serial maniacs and rapists do not often come across on the street, it is much more likely to meet a thief or an asocial citizen who simply does not have enough for a bottle. If you are aware that the enemy is superior to you in strength, it is better to fulfill his requirements and give your wallet or a new player. You will still earn money, as you can then buy another novelty from Apple, but your life and health are priceless.
