The reason? Pepper Spray is illegal in Denmark.
WND (h/t Liz) Rapes have made big headlines in Sonderberg recently after several women there reported sexually harassed by the aggressive behavior of Muslim male asylum seekers and refugees at the local asylum center.
But the Local newspaper says it’s not known if the assailant in this latest incident was a Muslim asylum-seeker or refugee. (No, it means the police are refusing to release the description of the rapist because he was a muslim)
The assailant allegedly knocked her to the ground, unbuttoned her pants and tried to undress her. The girl was able to prevent herself from being assaulted any further by whipping out her pepper spray and using it on the attacker.
However, authorities now say the young woman could be the one who is criminally charged. “It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told TV Syd. The man who attacked the teen fled the scene of the crime and has not been arrested.
“The case has sparked a backlash among some Danes who point to increasing reports of sexual harassment by Muslim asylum seekers in Sonderborg and other Danish cities at the same time that police say they are stretched too thin to properly carry out their duties,” the Local reported. (Spread too thin chasing after Muslim thugs and rapists)
“Many readers wrote in the comments section on TV Syd’s story about the incident that they would be willing to pay the girl’s fine, which will most likely be 500 kroner ($72).”
Meanwhile, a nightclub in the city is now precluding Muslim guests from entering if they can’t speak Danish, English or German. Other nightclubs in Denmark are reportedly considering similar measures.
