A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:
1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun, braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.
2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.
3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.
4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.
5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.
6] Number three is public restrooms.
7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.
8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.
9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.
10] Close range: Keys, tactical pen or tactical torch are good. Deploy it ASAP and get ready to strike his face (straight attacks, STABS) yelling Go Back, Stay Back!
Tips from Spartans Academy
1. If you are close enough strike his eyes, knee him in the groin, bite, scratch, hit his throat so he can’t breath properly – he will soon run out of power.
2. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Throw it to one side of the robber …. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. After that run as fast as you can in the other direction.
3. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).4. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! Run in a large unpredictable zig-zag pattern, not a straight line. The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!
5. Women, always try to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
