"...the area is surrounded with schools..."
How would you categorize the incident?
Is the culprit somebody you(the victim) know?
Were there any bystanders?
Was this case reported?
Was the culprit legally prosecuted?
Any other details to share?
It occurred when I was walking back from school to my hostel. Since my hostel was in an open area, my friends and I would have to walk by the side of the road for less than 1km. However, the area is surrounded with schools, specifically elementary schools so we didn’t think through about getting harassed. The road was filled with parents’ cars fetching their children. As we walked, a car stopped beside us and the driver urged us to come closer. We thought he was asking for directions, so we did. Then he showed us him jerking off his genitals. We were so shocked that we didn’t get to do anything that he managed to drive away. Apparently, it happened frequently to other of my friends as well. What’s even more disgusting that he did it in front of an elementary school where younger children could have fall victim to that harassment.
What do you think would be most effective in preventing rape and sexual harassment?
