I was walking home from the library when a man walked up to me with open arms. He put them around me and began kissing my face. I asked him to stop, [but he] grabbed my chest and butt. He kept kissing me and kept his arms around me, I kept asking him to stop. After a few minutes, he finally let me go. I no longer feel safe walking home from the library.
