No woman ever deserves something like that to happen to them or worse, but dont go out alone that time of night because there are scum of the earth out there and women have to protect themselves, unfortunately these are the times we live in. I would never go out that time of night by myself and I certainly would never let my daughters go out at that time alone either.

Probably a smack head. They will steal the pennies off a dead mans eyes for their next fix. Hope the lady gets over her scary experience.
