My daughter was assaulted on the street in Fez last weekend. She was walking home around midday from a sandwich shop with her sister when a guy, old enough to behave better, started following them. He was close enough to make them nervous and they did stop to ask some construction workers to speak to him. They chose to ignore the situation and laugh it off. How many times have you heard that following girls just gives men on the street a cheap thrill and something to talk about with their fellow lounge lizards?
Well, this harasser decided to grab my daughter and take a pinch. She spun around and slapped him and he punched her in the face and took another swing that cut her over the eye. By that time, the construction workers were on site and two cars had stopped. They gave the assaulter a "talking to" and sent him on his way.
The incident was reported to the police and they did go out to the site and talk to witnesses, but nobody would give up the name or identity of the assaulter. He is known in the area and was seen after the incident, but again, nobody would give up his identity. The way I understand it, no harm done!!
