Woman, 18, fended off kidnapper

This could have been bad, but it is one story I know you all will appreciate.

From the Star Telegram:

FORT WORTH -- A woman eluded an attempted kidnapping Friday by grabbing the would-be abductor's crotch.

The 18-year-old woman was walking in the 3800 block of Maurice Avenue about noon when a man in a car offered her a ride. After she refused repeatedly, the man got out, grabbed her hair and ordered her to get in, said Lt. Paul Henderson, a police spokesman.

The woman fought back, and the man threw her to the ground and kicked her in the ribs, Henderson said. When the man pulled her back to her feet, she grabbed his crotch, Henderson said. The man fell to the ground, and the woman punched him in the face and ran, Henderson said.
Good for her. She did not listen to the "Give them what they want and you will be fine" mantra of the anti violence crowd, and she is alive and well because of it.

Hopefully this goblins next victim will be armed. They have a pretty good description of his vehicle.

Police describe the suspect as a 20- to 30-year-old black man, about 6 feet 1 inch and about 200 pounds. He was wearing a gray muscle shirt and bluejeans and has grilles on his upper and lower teeth. His black two-door Pontiac Sunbird has blue lights inside and underneath, police said.
It is not very common any more for the news to report the race of a goblin at large, the fact that they did indicates to me that they want this guy caught now.

Another interesting note is that this incident happened at noon, in broad daylight. Remember that next time someone questions why it is necessary to go out armed 24/7.
