It is not a coincidence that all three of these assaults occurred in parking lots. Next to domestic violence, where assaults occur in the home, parking lots represent the highest risk location for assaults. Most parking lots offer "perps" excellent places to hide, between and under cars, to stage surprise attacks on victims who are not paying attention after leaving a store heading to their car.
Police have captured one suspect and have leads on the others. One victim told a television station that she carries a piece of lead pipe in her car as what she called the "equalizer."
We have always recommended that women carry some kind self-defense product with them and have it handy in their hands when they're in a parking lot on their way to their car. We have always recommended that they approach their car with caution, unlocking the doors before they get there and locking the doors quickly after they get in.

One of the best self-defense products you can carry with you is pepper spray that can disable an assailant for as long as 45 minutes. We particularly recommend pepper sprays are on keychains because they are more likely to be with you.
