Teenager fought off mugger by ‘booting him in the balls’ as hard as she couldJanuary 10, 2019
A teenager has told how she fought off a mugger by kicking him in the groin as hard as she could.
Farrah Taylor, 19, was approached by a man with a scruffy beard as she walked home from work along Courtpark Road in the Orchard Park area of Hull.
The man, who was wearing a tracksuit, was initially walking behind her but after catching her up, he asked her for the time, before trying to grab her phone out of her hand.
But the carer, who works in a care home, was able to fight him off by kicking him in the groin while screaming, before running away.
"He was walking behind me," she said.
"He asked me for the time so I went to get my phone out my bag and he tried grabbing my phone and bag off me, so I screamed as loud as I could and kicked him in his private bits so I could run away from him.
"I’m not sure if I did hurt him, but I was scared. I didn’t know what would happen. It was dark and I was walking home.
"I couldn’t see what he really looked like but he had his hood up and had like a scruffy beard, he was around 5ft 9ins to 5ft 10ins and wearing what looked like a tracksuit.
"It’s made me more aware. I’m fine, just shocked. Please just be careful around Hall road and Courtpark Road end."
The incident happened in Courtpark Road, close to where it meets Hall Road, at about 6.45am on Monday, January 7.
While running away, Miss Taylor dropped her passport out of her bag and is appealing for anyone who has found it to hand it in.
Farrah took to Facebook to warn others what had happened to her and her post has been shared more than 1,000 times.
In her post she said: "If I didn’t scream and boot him in his balls god knows what he would of done.
"While running I’ve dropped my passport out my bag so if anyone comes across it can you message please!"
Many people have commented on the Facebook post to praise her for her quick thinking.
One woman said: "Good girl showing him not to mess with you. Hope you’re ok and make sure you report it."
Another said: "Omg hope you are OK, well done on fighting back you brave lass."
