Ambush Attacks And Bathroom Safety: How To Deal With Sudden Street Fights

“Not today, motherf—er!”

Those are the words that Kelly Herron screamed as her “battle cry” when she was attacked without warning.

The homeless sex offender who dragged her to the floor of the bathroom beat her bloody as he tried to rape her.

But Kelly Herron wasn’t finished — not by a long shot!

And while her attack was horrific, it can also help teach us…

How To Avoid Ambush Attacks and Sudden Streetfights: One Woman’s Rape Defense

Kelly Herron was standing in a public bathroom off a Seattle running trail when she realized she was in danger.

“As I was drying my hands, I became aware that something was wrong,” she told the news.

That’s when Gary Steiner, a 40-year-old registered sex offender, attacked this 36-year-old marathon runner.

Gary Steiner

Steiner had been hiding in a bathroom stall in the ladies’ room, just waiting for a victim!

He immediately took her to the floor of the bathroom, wailing away on her with his fists.

Kelly fought like a woman possessed.

At one point, she crawled into a bathroom stall, on her back, and tried to kick the door shut with her foot.

Steiner climbed under the stall door from the next one and began beating her in the face.

Kelly started to feel like she was going to black out.

That was bad, because as soon as she was subdued, Steiner intended to rape her.

That’s when Kelly had what she later described as a “moment of clarity.”

She thought to herself,

“This doesn’t have to be a FAIR fight!”

So she started to claw his face.

Fighting her way clear like a demon, Kelly punched him again and again, telling herself never to give up.

Finally, she managed to escape the bathroom.

A passerby, who had a carabiner keychain, used it to lock Steiner in the bathroom until the cops could arrest him.

And just like that, this lone woman had not only defeated a street ambush… but she had managed to get her scumbag attacker CAUGHT!

Better yet, Kelly Herron’s story beautifully illustrates three tips you can use to avoid (or fight off) a street ambush:

1. Search Your Surroundings For Ambushers

Kelly’s “sixth sense” told her something was wrong when she was standing in the bathroom.

The problem with that kind of intuition is that it’s usually too little, too late!

What she should have done was check the bathroom when she first entered, to see if she was alone.

A quick glance under the stalls would probably have shown her Steiner’s pants and shoes, which would have looked out of place in a ladies’ room.

You should get in the habit of checking your surroundings wherever you are, including when you get into your own car (to make sure nobody’s hiding in the back seat).

2. If You’re Attacked, Fight Like A Rabid Animal

This is the thing Kelly did “most right.”

She fought, and fought, and fought.

In describing the fight on her Instagram account and in interviews after the assault, she spoke several times about the mindset she had.

She refused to give up, refused to let Steiner have his way with her, and refused to become a victim.

When it was over, she posted the picture you see here of her stitched, scarred face.

She wasn’t looking for sympathy.

She wanted people to know that you CAN fight back against an attacker… and that mindset of survival and determination is what saved her from rape (and worse).

3. If You Go “Out” Or They Take You Somewhere Else, It’s Over

Kelly understood this, and it’s why she got the “burst of adrenaline” to finally fight back and escape Steiner’s grip.

She knew — and spoke about the fact — that if she blacked out, she was going to be raped (and maybe dead).

That very real fear is what gave her the power to keep on fighting past her limits.

And that, honestly, makes her one hell of a woman.

She’s somebody we can all learn from when it comes to fighting back against an attack.

I just want you, and your family, to be safe.

Fighting A Larger Attacker Got VERY REAL For This Brave Woman!

Pizza Shop Woman Fights Off Attacker (Brittany Brophy)
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

I have never seen TERROR on a person’s face as clearly as you can see it in these pictures.

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing as you read this, I want you to imagine something:

There’s a guy behind you, and he wants to HURT you.

I’m serious: the second you turn your head to look, there will be a guy RIGHT THERE.

You might be thinking, “Don’t be silly, Jeff. That isn’t going to happen.”

Well, amigo, that’s EXACTLY what happened to young Brittany Brophy while she was working in the office of a small-town pizza shop.

And the look on her face is why this story is so important to every one of us – because Brittany could be your wife, your mother, your daughter… or even a stand-in for you, depending on the situation.

Brave Woman Fights Back Against Robber (Until He Gets Bored!)

It happened in a local pizza place in White Center, Washington.

Brittany Brophy was sitting there working, when a thug in a winter hat simply enters and grabs at the money she’s counting.

There was some kind of security nanny-cam monitoring the office to keep employees honest, too – so we can see the entire horrible robbery clear as day:

When he grabs her, Brittany is scared out of her wits – and jumps up on the counter, kicking at him with her feet with as much power as she has!

Recovering and realizing what’s really happening, she jumps to her feet, now standing on the counter.

Then she starts wrestling with the scumbag while he tries to escape with the money!

The fight gets nasty, then, but finally, Brittany struggles with him until he throws her to the ground.

And then, like he’s gotten bored, he just leaves.

I know: Kind of “anti-climactic,” huh?

The robber didn’t even hurry – he just let himself out and was gone.

Another way to look at it is that Brittany got incredibly lucky.

“I’ve been through a little bit in my life,” she told the cops. “Having me be 5 foot 3 and the only person around to take care of myself… But all in all, I just knew I was gonna be okay, that I just needed to get out of there.”

Except… that’s not what she did.

She didn’t “get out of there.”

She fought with the bad guy until he decided to leave, and the only reason she didn’t get hurt is because he didn’t try harder to injure her.

Now, I give Brittany a lot of credit: she recovered from the initial terror of suddenly finding a stranger attacking her, and she fought back like a wildcat.

But it’s obvious just from looking at her with her feet in the air that she was outmatched.

The thug was bigger and stronger, towering over her, and if he had decided to choke her or even stab her instead of just throwing her to the ground and leaving, well…

…Things might not have “just been okay.”

What Brittany needed to know was how to fight off and PUT DOWN a bigger attacker – and the good news is, there ARE ways she (or you, if you were facing a larger thug) could do just that!

Now, I have to ask…

If you were attacked, from out of nowhere – and by a bigger and stronger person, the way Brittany was – would YOU know what to do?

Did you know that there’s a single move that will work for a much smaller person against a larger attacker, allowing you to practically take their head off?

I know… because I’ve used it myself, and it worked for me every single time.

If you’d like to learn more, check out this video – but be warned: it’s a lot more graphic than Brittany’s attack.

It’s important that you watch it, though, because…

…YOUR attacker might not just lose interest and walk away, which means you’ll have to FIGHT to keep him from hurting you!

In other words, you need a PLAN for when your luck runs out.

And I can give you that plan, along with the tips and tactics to do it if some scumbag ever targets you.
