A few weeks ago, I was walking home from Target and had to walk past the homeless shelter on Irving because they were doing construction on the sidewalk across the street. As I crossed Irving in the southern direction, a homeless, possibly crazy, man started screaming “BITCH” at me repeatedly as he followed me almost the rest of the way to my apartment building. This was incredibly scary, because I had no backup plan if he’d tried into my building. Since that encounter, I have come across again, and once again, he started following me. I’m just thankful that I was with my boyfriend the second time.
I need pepper spray.
