My sister was enjoying first friday . It was crowded and dark. A man grabbed her bottom , squeezed and ran away before she could react. She was messed up for weeks
A friend of mine also experienced the two creepers who would follow girls just to creep them out. She was at her boyfriends house and left late at night To drive home. Then two men in a car started following her but she thought she was just being paranoid. But she wasnt, she was being followed. She panicked and did what your not supposed to,.. she led them home. When she got out of her car she ran inside and looked put the window. They sat in the street with the windows rolled down and stared at her , with no fear. They gave her a good scare and her parents called the police but these guys are bad news
I had visited a friend until midnight and began my drive home. I was at a stop light and teo men in a car deove up beside me. When the light turned green , I noticed they moved directly behind me. I noticed they took the same turn onto the same higway so I decided to test if they were following me by swerving off the highway . They followed me . Finally i stopped in the middle of the street and pulled out my phone to call police. They pulled up beside me i made eye contact and pointed at my phone. They took off when they realized i was not running anymore and they saw i was calling police. I was stupid and decided to follow them for a chance to get their license plate. I chased them down the highway for a little while but then decided to turn aeound when it seemed they were driving too dangerous. This type of thing hapened alot in this area. Pleas share your stories because im certain these same men followed many ladies home at night.
I used to live down the road from Lackland Terrace park and decided to use the new track they installed. I hadnt even run one lap when a young highschool boy hiding in the jungle gym with his friends came out and yelled ” hey baby”! I ignored him ,since i had headphones on and kept going around hoping he would go away. But the 2nd lap he got closer and screamed “shake it!” Thats when I stopped, pulled out my phone and yelled back , “im calling the cops!” The look on his face was fear and he seemed surprised that a feeble female would talk back. He and his friends (including a female, smh) fled into the creek behind the park. I should have called the cops but sometimes you just think that they wont take you seriously. I have experienced this behavior too many times before.
I was at a gas station and accidently locked my keys in my car. I lived nearby and decided to walk home to get the spare keys . As i was walking down the busy street two men in seperate cars wistled at me and yelled “hey!” I ignored them of course but it made Walk even faster towards home. I am saddened that people cannot walk and feel safe. I dont like to go for runs or exercise outside because of perverts like this.
On the way back home from Walgreen’s one man in a car honked and jeered at me, and another man driving past also wolf whistled at me just moments later.
The graffiti on the HSC seal, while it is not the harassment of any one person, makes it necessary to point out again that harassment is not only something that happens to women.
In this case it harassment for being a Muslim (or, for that matter, for “looking” or “seeming” “like a Muslim”).
Don’t forget that street harassment is constantly happening to people of color, LGBT+ folks, and… more or less anyone perceived as “other” by society.

this actually happened to my aunt but i am posting it for her. she was outside having a cigarette and a man asked for a light. she let him borrow her lighter and the next day he came back asking for cigarettes. when she didn’t give him any he started lurking around and creeping up on people when they were outside for a break, and when they said they were going to call the cops on trespassers he started taunting them from just off the parking lot.
