Mary Jane Jarman, 33, a stay-at-home mom from Washington Heights, was jogging home on the Hudson River Greenway near the Henry Hudson Parkway and 190th Street at 9:30 a.m. Friday after dropping her daughter off at school when a man jumped out from a behind a wall holding a broken glass bottle, she said.


"Come here, come here," the man told Jarman, who said she began to run for her life, making it about 100 yards down the path before he grabbed her in a bear hug and took her down to the ground, knocking over the stroller in the process.


Jarman said she managed to struggle free and reached for a hand-held bike pump she had in the stroller, bashing the attacker over the head two or three times, until he began to bleed



The man fled off toward the West Side Highway, she said, leaving her shaken and alone.



She said she called 911 repeatedly, but the calls kept dropping in the thickly wooded area. She finally flagged down a biker along the path, who helped her, she said.


First off I really do like happy endings and this is about as good as it gets. Nice touch by the mugger as he apologized for being sick... The fighting spirit was alive and well with Mrs. Jarman..never give in, never give up!

Thank goodness for her fighting spirit and luck! Though, I think she is now ready to join the ranks of the concealed weapon carriers of America.

Considering it happened in N.Y I would think the bicycle pump was about as good as she could manage.. hahaha but I understand what you are saying..

I read this on the news yesterday........way to go lady!

I keep seeing more and more stories like this on the news and think it's great. We are living in a society where people especially women are sick and tired of being victims and are fighting back now.

Glad she and her baby are safe and sound.

Seriously?! When a victim gets shot, you guys say "She needed a gun!" and when a victim beats the crap out an assailant, you still say "She needed a gun!".

How sick can we get?

That's actually what you're suppose to do in a fight. If you can't run, then you simply try and grab anything around you as a weapon.

You're right, she shouldn't defend herself.

Yeah, because that's exactly what I said, huh. Dude, people need to grow up and realize that the Cold War nuclear escalation answer doesn't solve crime. The answer to violence isn't to give everybody a gun.

What the hell is wrong with you people? Why can't you just be like "Wow, that chick rocked his world. I'm really glad he didn't have a gun" instead of "Wow, that chick rocked his world. If only she shot him too."

Maybe because we have concerns for the next victims. If she had a gun then he'd be dead, or wounded + arrested, or just held at gunpoint + arrested. Any alternative would of been better then what happened.

What do you think happened? She handed his ass to him and he apologized. That's like the best thing that could have happened! Did you read a different story?
