Chantal Castanon chased and hit a man who groped her inside a New York City subway station on Aug. 31.
Castanon told WCBS that she was walking down the stairs to catch a train when the man, walking up the stairs, grabbed her buttocks:
I felt the rage coming from my stomach, I was like what did he just do to me? Did he really just touch me like that and he didn’t even care, just walked off like it was nothing.
Really quickly it happened but he just like grabbed my whole buttocks.
I was just like you know what? You’re not touching me like that and getting away with it.
It just happened so fast and when I saw it, I said wow, I can’t believe I actually did that, I didn’t even think about it!
Castanon’s attacker got away, but she hopes someone will turn him in:
I just want him caught because you don’t know who he did it to or who he’ll potentially do it to and it has to be stopped.
