While I was at a village Community Police and Council meeting last night, my daughter was being attacked as she walked home from a self-help group with her friend. She was shot at close range by a BB (?) gun at least 5 times, in her thighs and lower back, as she turned away to protect herself. Apparently a BB gun is a gas-propelled pellet gun. The perpetrator wore a balaclava and demanded their bags. DD told him that they had no money on them and he just shot her. Just like that. Her friend was uninjured and was able to dial 999 as the attacker ran off, and when the police and ambulance arrived she was able to give what description she could, to them.
DD is in hospital, on an anti-biotic drip as the pellets could have been infected by his hands as he loaded the gun. 3 of the pellets will need to remain in her thighs as they are too deep to remove.
My DD has already had to deal with so much emotional stuff over the years, and just when she was attempting to get her life back on track by going to her self-help group this b.....d comes along and does this.
So....I really don't think I'm being unreasonable to want to have a private minute alone with him. One minute would be all I'd need.
