A feel-good attempted rape story (TGIF): A 21-year-old bus driver tried to kiss a woman in Dubai; when she refused, he pulled out a knife and threatened to rape her, because buses around the world seem to come with a special rape-seating only area these days. The woman, a 28-year-old off-duty United States Navy personnel, knocked the blade from his hand, bit him, slammed him to the floor and locked him between her thighs.
She reported the incident, and her would-be rapist was arrested at home the following day for attempted rape, threatening to kill, assault and consuming alcohol illegally.
Obviously we have to teach men not to rape, not women to defend themselves, etc. etc. But who else wants to sign up for self-defense classes after work?
