Teen fights off attacker in Lake Elsinore with spiked track shoe
The incident happened Wednesday afternoon at Grand Avenue and Fairview Street, just a few blocks from Lakeside High School.
The girl was walking to the intersection when a man in a blue Honda Accord with tinted windows rolled down his driver’s side window and asked if she needed a ride. The girl ignored him.
Moments later, he went up to her and grabbed her with both hands. The girl fought him off, hitting him with a spiked track shoe.
She ran home and called police, said Sgt. Joe Borja with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Anyone with information can call the Lake Elsinore Police Department at (951) 245-3300.
