Woman Fends Off Attacker ... With Vomit Would-be robber runs off after she throws up on him By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Dec 4, 2014 4:10 PM CST 16 comments Comments (Shutterstock) (Newser) – A Georgia woman managed to fend off an attacker Saturday night ... by vomiting on him. The Athens Banner-Herald reports the woman was walking to her car after work around 10:30pm in the Georgia Square Mall parking lot when a man in a ski mask came from behind a vehicle. "The male struck in her face and put his hand on her throat while pushing her up against another vehicle," says a police report obtained by the Dacula Patch. "She said that during a struggle over her purse, she threw up on the suspect." That was apparently enough to scare him off. Police say he let go of her and drove off in a silver sedan.
