Florida Woman Kicks Attacker’s Ass In Gym
Florida woman is NOT a victim, so DO NOT roll up on her like she is.
A would-be attacker learned a valuable lesson last month when he tried to attack a 24-year-old woman as she worked out at her apartment complex’s gym. Surveillance video caught the incident as it unfolded. As the woman was working out, she noticed a man at the door. Thinking she recognized the man from the apartment community, she went to the door and let him in. That’s when the man dove at her and tried to wrestle her to the ground. As you can see in the video, the woman immediately threw punches and landed several direct hits. The man kept attacking the woman, driving her to the ground, but not for long. For a few moments, the two disappear from the screen, but when they return, the woman is seen running toward the door as the man reels and stumbles from the beating he’d just suffered.
Nashali Alma recounted the attack, saying when the man approached her quickly, she yelled “bro, what the f are you doing?” According to investigators with the Hillborough County Sheriff’s Department, the suspect, identified as Xavier Thomas, approached Alma and grabbed her by the wrist. When Alma told the man to leave, he reportedly chased her around the gym and eventually pinned her to the floor. But Alma never gave up. She gained the upper hand and fought off the man. That’s when she ran to the door and called 911 from another location.
“I actually had no fear. I’m a body builder and I’m pretty strong. So in my mind, he was kind of equal to me.”, Alma told deputies. Although the suspect fled the scene, he was apprehended within 24 hours and now faces charges of sexual battery, false imprisonment and kidnapping. Alma has some advice for women who may find themselves in the same terrifying spot, saying “Always keep fighting, never give up. As long as you fight back and show him that you’re strong and you’re not giving up, I believe it’s possible to escape.”
Sheriff Chad Chronister said he was overcome with emotion by Alma’s story, saying that he was proud of the woman’s strength and hard she fought off her attacker, never allowing herself to become a victim. Source: WFLA.com
