New submission from Mary
I got on the tube at Bethnal Green this morning on my way to work. The carriage was full and it seemed like I was the last person who could squeeze on. A youngish Chinese man in a smart business suit jumped on after me though. He was very close to me and I suddenly felt his hand between my legs. His coat was draped over his arm, as if to cover what he was doing. I quickly turned my back to him, to get away and to signal that I knew what he was doing. His hand promptly squirrelled round, though, and he groped at me forcibly. I shuddered and moved away into the carriage but he chased me with his hand, feeling my bum roughly. When I was far enough away so as to be safe, I started kicking at his ankles. I kicked him all the way to the next stop. He did nothing and made no eye contact. A girl next to me gave me a funny look, so I said loudly, “Sorry, this guy just felt me up” and pointed at him. Several people in the carriage heard. When we got to the next stop, Liverpool Street, I gave him a little push off the tube. I’m sure he would have left anyway, but I wanted to victimise him like he victimised me.
I wish I’d taken a photo of him, but didn’t think of it at the time.
