Hannah's Story

I was walking down High Street on 8/31/13 at around 6 PM on my way to the library, when I saw 4 guys walking toward me in NBA basketball jerseys. They were obviously drunk, but I couldn't hear what they were saying because I had headphones on. All of the sudden I hear them start screaming "MOM!!!" They ran towards me, and I backed up and took off my headphones. The one closest to me on the sidewalk kept running towards me saying "Can I have a hug mom?" He got close enough that I could smell the alcohol, and he started wrapping his arms around me until I screamed "No!" The scariest part is that I was totally just going to let him hug me because I was afraid he would get angry if I said no. I'm so glad I didn't let him though. He was gross.
