A brave 12-year-old girl has hit the headlines with her brave self-defence strategy of kicking a man right in the balls when he tried to attack her.
The bully said to be in his teens needed not a word to put him to his heels as he disappeared into the thin air and is still nowhere to be found.
Keiri Quintero, has been hailed for her rare move to defend herself as the man attacked her on the street of Brooklyn, New York as she was on her way back from the market where she had gone to buy something for her mum on Monday afternoon.
According to reports, the attacker whose age range is speculated to be between 15 and 16 approached unsuspecting Keiri with a fierce mien but got a whole lot more than he bargained for.
Keiri said: “He told me in the street, ‘Are you cold?’ I didn’t answer. I just crossed the street, and I stopped inside a McDonald’s. He was waiting there looking at the sky.”
Trying to ignore the teen, Keiri kept walking, but when she walked by a concealed passageway, he pulled her back and ordered her to give him money.
It did not end at that as the attacker began taking off his jacket and sensing danger, smart Keiri kicked him in the private part and escaped.
He immediately ran away while two good Samaritans, who saw what was happening went to the aid of the 12-year-old.
The husband of one of the Samaritans even went looking for Keiri’s attacker, but he didn’t manage to find the teen.
A manhunt has been launched by the cops with the aim of tracking down the attacker.
