Sexual assaults are becoming more and more heard about these day, with many more brave victims coming forward than ever before. Classes designed to teach women how to defend themselves against predators are popping up across the US and those trained in Martial Arts are teaching these attackers a lesson.
Sadly, in other countries, sexual assault is a rife, with cultural and societal issues creating barriers for women to come forward and defend themselves.
Lucky for 18-year-old Priyanka Singha Roy, her skills in martial arts saved her and her younger sibling from a gang of sexual attackers.
Earlier this week, Priyanka was approached by a gang of three men, jeering lewd comments and attempted to block her path and began grabbing her and her younger sibling.
After telling the men to back off, Priyanka gave up talking and brought out her fists. They were so unprepared.
With her skills in Taekwondo, Priyanka went to town on the attackers, beating them to a pulp before they cowardly ran away. According to the Hindustan Times, the girl and her mother then reported the attack to police.
A witness to the attack, after hearing commotion from around the corner of a street, said that the three men ended up laying on the ground with Priyanka standing over them, shouting at them and telling them that they were being punished for being bad men.

Thankfully, other witnesses to the crime were able to identify the men and they were soon arrested. Scumbags.
