A bit of advice for all the gals in our community. Arm yourself with the knowledge of whats going on, and carrying pepper spray might come in handy too.
So what exactly is going on? Does anyone know if the attacker has been caught, a description of who to look out for or what kind of vehicle, etc? It would be helpful to know if the people who were attacked thought they were specifically targeted by someone who had something against them, meaning other women may not be in danger, or was it thought to be a random attack on a random person they saw walking? Were all the attacks in the same area? (and specifically what area)
Did the attacker sneak up on them and grab them, in which case pepper spray or a stun gun likely would do no good, because you wouldnt have the time to react and use it, or was it a person pretending to be friendly and then attacked?
It doesnt do anyone much good to simply know that there is an attacker on the loose, if you dont know what you are looking for. To help other women from suffering the same fate, information like this needs to be shared and spread!
Although I live no where near the Convent, which is where this apparently took place?, I will still be on the lookout around my own home, and I hope everyone else will take the time to look out their windows more often as well, and call the police if you see anything suspicious.
