SEATTLE -- (KDVR) -- On the fourth mile of a marathon training run, 36-year-old Kelly Herron stopped to use a public bathroom in a Seattle park.
“As I was drying my hands I became aware that something was wrong,” she tells ABC News.
As she turned around, she found herself face to face with a man who “immediately took me down to the ground, hit both my knees and legs, and then it was a fight on the bathroom floor and I just kept screaming, 'not today mother f—er.'”
Herron said that bit of profanity became her “battle cry” throughout the attack, as she tried at first to lock herself inside a stall.
