A 16-year-old was walking home when she discovered that two men were following her.
According to the girl, one tried to lure her into his car.
“One shouted ‘women like you ought to die,’ then I ran for my life,” said the 16-year-old girl, who wants to remain anonymous.
On Thursday, 16-year-old girl in Svedala was on her way home from the bus.
As she was listening to the music, the girl says that she did not notice that a car had pulled up alongside her.
“It drove at my speed and I quickly looked there. Then I saw two men sitting in the car. They told me to get into the car and scoffed at me while they said it. Then I increased my pace,” says 16-year-old.
She says that the situation began to feel increasingly uncomfortable. The men shouted and their tone became more aggressive. She once again put the earpiece into her ear to avoid hearing the men’s screams.
“One shouted “women like you should die” and “whore”. Then I ran, and I heard them jeer behind me,” says 16-year-old.
“I was really scared, I had no power at all and there was no one nearby.”
The girl’s mother says she found her daughter completely distraught when she came home. They called the police right away to tell them about the incident.
“I’m used to hearing about such incidents, as I work with victims. But when it happens to one’s own children, then you have a different role as a mother. At first I was furious with those who did this, and then I started thinking about what could have happened. Maybe they just wanted to f***; if that was so, and they had gotten her into the car, it would have been two against one. I was very angry and terrified,” says 16-year-old’s mother.
The incident has been reported to the police. But the 16-year-old thinks at the same time that the penalties are too mild and that must change.
“You hear about girls who are raped and threatened. In addition, other friends said that they had experienced similar incidents like this. I’m always afraid when I’m out,” she says….
