The vehicle stopped and the lone occupant got out, ran toward the victim, grabbed her and attempted to pull her into the vehicle, before she escaped, according to the Police release.
The student said she fought the attacker using training she had received from a Sexual Assault Resource Agency presentation at her sorority house, according to the press release.
The attacker gave up and ultimately returned to his vehicle. The victim immediately called 911 and described the attack.
A great story, but what are the lessons to be learned?
Fight back. Refuse to be abducted or victimized. Be aware of possible threats.

From the post To all our Veterans -- thank you! from Blackfive
Martial Views post Isshinryu's Heritage Called Into Question highlights one of many allegations into the claims of many arts origins.
I once had a man who was enrolling his child in one of my schools ask me, "Is this a traditional art?" The question left me grasping because I could not answer in one word (yes or no), but tried to explain that TKD was, in my opinion a descendant of Japanese and Okinawan influences, to be conservative. He replied, after smiling at my obvious inability to be succinct, that "tradition" is a very relative term. Whew!
Does it really matter if your style was really passed on from the monks who lived on air and could walk on it as well? Or is a punch just a punch, no matter what label we give it?
Update: I corrected the title. Darn auto correct!
I want to thank all veterans, of every service, no matter where or when. All of you have contributed to our freedom, and to the prosperity of the entire free world. Thank you and your families for your sacrifices.
