“It terrified me”

New submission from Anna W

I was walking home from a netball game and someone came up behind me and grabbed my ass. I sort of squeaked – thinking it might have been a friend or my boyfriend (this is not acceptable behaviour but was the only thing I could think of). I turned around and it was a random late 20s/early 30s man, I stared at him. Couldn’t get any words out except for a “What the fuck?”.

He stared at me as if he’d done nothing wrong and said “Sorry” proceeding to turn around and open the door to his apartment block with his keys.

I don’t know if he accidentally bumped me with his keys or whatever (definitely not what I felt when it all first happened), but it terrified me and now I’ll never walk home not wearing a coat to cover my bum in leggings.
