A 17-year-old girl managed to escape being raped by fighting off her attacker as he ripped off her clothing. Now police say she will be charged with a crime for defending herself.

The teenager was attacked around 10p.m. by a man described as “dark-skinned” in central Sønderborg, Denmark.

She told police her attacker struck her, threw her to the ground and began forcibly removing her clothes.

Using a canister of pepper spray, the 17-year-old was able to fight him off and escape the attack.

Now that tool of self defense is going to leave her as the only person charged with a crime in the incident.

“It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten said, as cited by TV Syd.

Users of social media websites expressed their outrage over the incident.

Irony being what it is, the girl only began carrying pepper spray because the local police have failed to curtail a wave of sexual attacks by asylum seekers and refugees.

Attacks in the city have grown so bad that nightclubs have been forced to ban people based on what languages they speak.

“We must say that a large number of the male guests who come from the local asylum center have a very hard time respecting the opposite sex. In my eyes, it is harassment when one or more men continue to touch a young woman after she has said ‘stop,’” Glenn Hollender, from the Sonderborg club Den Flyvende Hollænder, told TV Syd earlier in January.

Police say they have not been able to locate the attacker and currently do not have any leads that might help identifying or capturing the man.

The teenage victim will likely avoid any sort of jail time and her punishment will likely be a fine similar to a speeding ticket. However, despite how minor her punishment might be, most people agree that any punishment in this case is just adding insult to injury.

This is what happens when you allow the government to take control of how you defend yourself.

I've read about attacks being on the rise in Scandinavia.

So this girl is supposed to just submit to the attack?!  Geez!

The law needs to be changed.  Maybe they'd like it better if the women carried bleach or ammonia.  It does the same thing but blinds the perpetrator.  Would they prefer that? I lived in a state that had the same sort of law and it got changed because we told them we'd carry bleach or ammonia and would blind our attackers.

I odn't care if the punishment carries no jail time, it carries stigma, a stigma that will follow her and could prevent her from getting a job.  The law NEEDS CHANGING AND IT NEED IT NOW.

Disgusting. And if she hadn't been carrying pepper spray then what? She kicks him in the balls to get away and gets slapped with assault charges? Completely disgusting.

And most liberals use Denmark as an example of that they want (public heathcare, gun bans, accepting refugees by the thousands ). This is what you will get for listening to the liberals
