If you are ever attacked, try to keep them talking, make them focus on what they are doing by asking them, what are you doing?, why are you doing it?,
make them actually think about it.
Try not to make them angry, and if they look as though they are having some sort of psychotic episode try and ground their thinking here in reality by
making them think about mundane everyday things, drop this in out of nowhere unexpectedly, do you know how much a packet of cigarettes are?, or, do
you know what the time is?, anything to try and act as a grounding rod between their brain and reality.
People tend to think fast when they are under pressure, you will be surprised what you find you can be capable of with adrenalin surging.
Also learn to feel where the call button on your phone is and maybe get a collar mike, make 911 or a loved one the first call that goes out if you hit
the call button.
Think of ways to make a verbal description without alerting your attacker that this is what you are doing, "You look cold in that brown jacket and
that ripped sleeve can't keep you dry why don't you let me buy you some clothes, we could get you a new t shirt that florida beach one is sooo
dirty, new shoes too those brown ones are to big for you" blablabla a commentary that helps you and also makes your attacker think that you are
thinking about what is best for them.
Arent you worried someone will CALL THE POLICE, o my god if you were caught kidnapping someone you'd get 20 years..
And remember they have a goal they are working towards, very unlikely to be sexually orientated, especially if a drink or drug user, at some point ask
them if they want to go for a drink or go get high, this could be the goal they have anyway, if you appear friendly enough and believable, they may
just accept your invitation.
I have been in a situation where i was held hostage by two nasty crackheads because i wouldn't give them the money i had, i couldn't take them, they
couldn't find the money, but being on the wrong end of these guys and a screwdriver was pretty scary.
