Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

An armed South Carolina woman fired her gun in self-defense at a man who allegedly tried to sexually assault her on the Automall Parkway in Rock Hill. According to Lt. Michael Chavis of the Rock Hill Police Department, the attack unfolded before 10 p.m. when the perpetrator grabbed the victim and tried to pull her pants down. The woman then fought back against her attacker as he allegedly tried to pull her into a nearby wooded area. The victim was able to pull out her gun during the incident and shoot at the man. He fled the scene, but it is unclear if he was hit by any gunfire, Chavis said. Defending yourself against enemies goes beyond big government and foreign enemies.
