This teenager almost got raped but was able to fight off the Muslim rapist, but might still have to pay consequences.
A 17-year-old Danish girl who successfully fended off a would-be rapist by using pepper spray is now facing the likelihood of criminal charges, because the popular defense item is against the law.
According to the Local, the teen girl told police she was attacked last Wednesday by an English-speaking man in the city of Sonderborg, Denmark.
The assailant allegedly knocked her to the ground, unbuttoned her pants and tried to undress her.
The girl was able to prevent herself from being assaulted any further by whipping out her pepper spray and using it on the attacker. However, authorities now say the young woman could be the one who is criminally charged.
“It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told TV Syd.
The man who attacked the teen fled the scene of the crime and has not been arrested.
