A 17-year-old Danish girl was walking down the street with near a center for migrants and refugees when she was attacked. She was thrown down to the ground and her attacker tried to force himself on her only to be turned away when she fought back with pepper spray. There’s only one problem. Pepper spray is illegal, and she now faces prosecution.
A Danish teenager who was sexually assaulted near a migrant asylum centre has been told she will be prosecuted after using pepper spray to fend off her attacker.
The 17-year-old told police she was targeted in the coastal town of Sonderborg by an English-speaking man, who knocked her to the ground and tried to undress her.
But she managed to prevent the man from attacking her further by spraying the substance at him.
However, as it is illegal to use pepper spray, the teenage girl is set to face charges. It is likely she will face a 500 Krone (#50) fine
Local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told TV Syd: ‘It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely to be charged for that.’
The man who attacked the girl fled from the scene and has not yet been charged. It is unclear if the man was an asylum seeker or refugee.

As pointed out in the story, attacks against women in Europe by refugees is a growing problem. Isn’t it time these government leaders actually address the problem rather than sidestepping it. This girl is not a criminal.
