Karen Zgoda posts an account of what happened to her round 9:30 p.m. yesterday on the East Boston Greenway near the Y:
Saw a skunk and turned around and the man was there. I was startled and started walking back towards home and he came up and kicked my backside HARD. I started screaming as loud as I could and hitting him with my water bottle and he ran away. I walked to the Massport cop at Piers Park and reported it to them and BPD. He did not take anything before he ran away. I am sore but OK. Please be alert as you are walking outside and NO MORE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN.
