One night, Lucy's car broke down in an abandoned parking lot.
Then, a suspicious man came by. Lucy didn't have an exact reason why, but she still didn't feel safe.
I'm sorry, I don't feel comfortable with that. I can handle this on my own.
Ma'am, I noticed that your car isn't working. Do you want to come back with me to my place, and I can call someone to tow your car?
He began to angrily approach the car, and reached into his pocket while saying:
Please, I insist.
Lucy realized that he might hurt her, and that she needed to defend herself and then get away. She understood she might get hurt in the process, but she knew that her life was more important than her car and some scratches or bruises.
By using self-defense tactics that she learned, she stopped his attack.
Then Lucy ran away to a public space. She called the police, and then called an Uber to go home.
