A 28-year-old sailor enjoying a day-long shore leave in Dubai reportedly became the target of an attempted sexual assault when she got on a bus to get back to the port. Instead, the driver parked the bus in a lot, allegedly pulled out a knife, and reportedly tried to rape her. Here's what happened next, according to The National:
The woman, an off-duty US navy sailor, knocked the knife from his grasp, broke it in two, bit his hand, wrestled him to the ground and put him in a stranglehold between her thighs.
Having beaten him into submission, she left the bus and reported the incident to her commander.
