Shocking moment woman was allegedly attacked while jogging in broad daylight

A young Australian woman has shared the emotional moments after falling victim to an alleged random attack while out for a run in broad daylight this week, warning other women “to be careful and aware of your surroundings”.

Breanna Coats, 24, was running around Huntfield Heights in Adelaide with her Apple Airpods when she was suddenly approached by two teenagers.

“I moved to the left so they could pass me,” he recalled to Yahoo News. “But they came at me, so I stopped the music and asked them if they were okay.”

She says the teens then asked her if she had a vaporizer before allegedly lashing out and physically grabbing her by the arm and pulling her hair.

“They pushed me to the ground and she (one of the teens) repeatedly kicked me in the head,” Breanna said. Eventually, a car passing nearby stopped to help and the girls fled, she said.

In the moments after the alleged attack, the young woman filmed herself in what she described as a state of complete shock.

“I’m shaking… I just got attacked. What the fuck,” he says to the camera in the 19-second clip, revealing a large bruise under his right eye.

Speaking to Yahoo, she said she recorded the short video and sent it to family members and only decided to post it online hours later as a sort of public service announcement to other people in the area, as well as women around the country.

“A lot of people have asked me why I was filming,” he said. “I was so shocked that I didn’t actually feel anything, and I didn’t know if there was any damage… I took out my phone’s camera to see and then I started recording it.” She shared it on TikTok about eight hours later, in part, to “raise awareness” and because she believed there were other victims like her, she added.

It comes as violence against women and the government’s response have been at the forefront of national debate.

“It sounds very sexist, but I’m usually on the lookout for men and stuff like that,” Breanna told Yahoo. “I would never have imagined that two young girls would be capable of something like this.”

South Australian Police confirmed that on Thursday a 13-year-old girl was arrested in connection with the incident and released on bail, while on Friday a 16-year-old girl was arrested for aggravated assault and also charged with two other matters. pending aggravated assault. assault and shoplifting.
