Tactical Scenario -- Attacked While Jogging

Tactical Scenario -- Attacked While Jogging

This incident is a little dated, but it can definitely serve as a training point.  Basically, a teenage girl goes for a run in broad daylight.  While jogging along a wooded path she is attacked and the article indicates the suspect was charged with attempted rape.  This paints a very violent and scary situation for a teenage girl just looking to get in some exercise.

People go for runs everyday and even some of our readers may participate in outdoor activities such as running.  What measures do you take to ensure this type of attack is not successful on you or one of your loved ones?  Do you carry a handgun while walking or running or do you have things like pepper spray?  If you have a minor child what advice do you provide them about situations like is described in the article.

Teenager attacked while jogging in woods:

I personally do not like running or outdoor exercise, but when I did back in the day, I always carried a blade.  I found it was easy to hold while jogging and at least gave me a tool if I needed to get out of a sticky situation.  My children on the other hand are taught to never go out alone and to always be on the lookout for the criminal element.  I have fostered a healthy awareness of criminal activity in my children and I pray it is never put to the test.

Here is your scenario,  you are jogging through a wooded area in your neighborhood, when out of no where a man attacks you with a clubbed weapon.  What do you do? Enjoy.
