    This headline should have read "Woman shoots and kills sexual preditor during attack".

    - Always have a phone nearby So you can hit him/her with it, that is the only good it will do. Such a false sense of security to make you believe you have time to dial a phone and wait for someone to arrive in a typical assault.

    He couldn't attract a woman of any kind because he is not that suave or women scare him. He doesn't know what to say to a woman to start a relationship. He is sexually frustrated. He is a average person someone you would not suspect. He probably lives with his Mom. There hope that helps yall.
