Apparently there’s some guy roaming around the Mar Mikhail street sexually harassing women at night. As recommended by the poster, always have someone walk or drive you home not just in Mar Mikhail but almost everywhere you go these days.
“It was Friday night and I just finished work. It was 2:30 a.m. and I was walking home, which is in Geitawi…As I was going up the Armenian stairs, a guy stopped in front of me and asked me where Gemmayze was. I pointed him out in the right direction. He then asked me, ‘Where are you going?’ At this point, I decided I wasn’t going to speak to him [and kept going up the stairs.] He was walking along side, muttering to himself. Then he cut me off at the top of the stairs and asked, ‘Sex?’ and mimed a blow job, before undoing his pants. So I backed away and started screaming at him, saying, ‘Haram, khalas, and get away from me.’ After that he ran down the stairs.”
She said no one came to her aid after she started screaming.
She also told NOW that “I didn’t want to go to the police; they won’t do anything. But I wanted people to know about this and I wanted the guy to be caught. [Link]”

men of Jemmayze or whoever, mabada shi b3ato bent awiye lawa7da w re2bouwa w r2a3ou 2atle bas y2arrib sawba farrmoulo … w 7ottoulo sigara b temmo w zettou b 2alb l makhfar aw some drugs mabedorro … la2eno raping women doesn’t really give him what he deserve with our beautiful law 🙂
Did anyone thought of women who do not read English for instance? They won’t be able to read the warning of Gemmayzeh… I don’t read English, therefore I am to be raped! unbelievable! بالعربي يا جماعة! باللبناني!
It’s courageous of her to speak out ,you don’t find that many women in Lebanon,usually they just shut up and are intimidated by police here in Lebanon ,good for her for standing up for herself ,next time just take his number and his name and post it in public ,that’ll even scare bastards like that in the country
Here’s a wild idea.. how about you DON’T walk the streets alone at 2:30 am?
You can’t control evil people’s sick intentions, but you can protect yourself by avoiding such situations.. take the morning shift at work, borrow a car.. you can’t really walk around after midnight and expect everything to go smooth, it’s a messed up world out there
