SANTEE, Calif. -- A woman leaving a Santee bar was pushed to the ground by a man who tried to remove some of her clothing, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department reported Monday.

The woman left the Second Wind around 12:45 a.m. Sunday and was walking in an area around Graves Avenue, between Prospect Avenue and Pepper Drive, when the unidentified attacker knocked her down and tried to strip clothing from her lower body, Sgt. D. Miles Ting said.

The woman was able to kick her assailant and drive him off, Ting said.

The sergeant said she described her attacker as white, in his 20s, with light-colored short hair. He didn’t say a word during the attack, she said.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Sheriff's Sexual Assault Unit at 858-974-2316.

    More woman are now carrying guns, so I can’t wait for some a hole to get shot. Ladies get your CCW to protect yourselfs because it is only getting worse.

    Also advisable to the ladies: common sense might tell you that partying at a bar until early morning is not the best idea. If some horny drunk hits on you and then sees you leaving alone, it is an invitation for trouble.

    • What is WRONG With people?

      You are an idiot! No person, man or woman, has the right to attack anyone just because they are partying at a bar until early morning”. As a human being I have the right to be out and about if I desire – that does not give men the right to attack me. No one is asking for anything you Neanderthal-ic cretin. Rape is wrong. No body has the right to force another person into sex. Period. Doesn’t matter if they are alone, drinking, how they dress, how “horny” the perp is, Rape is wrong. Period. I truly hope you “thechurchofchrismartin” do not have a son, would hate to think you are passing along the idea that women ask to get raped just because we like to enjoy the same freedoms men take for granted. Sick.
