Woman Shares Selfie After Being Punched In The Face For "Telling Man To Stop Groping Her"
A selfie which was posted by a woman at the Notting Hill Carnival has been shared thousands of times across social networks. The image shows the woman's horrific injuries following an attack during the Carnival.
According to the Independent, the woman in question alleges she was punched in the face for telling a man repeatedly to stop groping her.
Mary Brandon posted the photo to Facebook stressing the fact that she spent nine hours receiving treatment following the assault.
Ms Brandon said: “A man in the crowd grabbed my arse. When I told him not to he did it again.I pushed him away, exercising my right to tell a man to stop touching my body without my permission, so he took a swing at me and punched me in the face.”
The Evening Standard is reporting that other women have come forward with their experiences from the Carnival following Ms. Brandon's Facebook post.
“I can honestly say I will always stand up to someone who thinks they can get away with this behaviour. I’d take a punch again from this loser or any other loser who thinks it’s OK to treat women like this."
The police are currently investigating the incident.
