One of the victim's in the reported attacks in North Seattle says "He straight up tackled me to the ground."

The woman, who works at a North Seattle bar, does not want to be identified.

She was walking home, alone, late Saturday night after work, when a man jumped her from behind.

"I just kicked and screamed and fought with everything I had. I didn't know what else to do," she said.

"Maybe I kicked him in the groin because he let up for about half a second, just long enough for me to be able to push him off me and get up ... and just ran."

She showed KING 5 her shattered cell phone, which she may have used to hit her attacker.

The woman has bruises and scratches on the left side of her body. She says she will not walk alone, at night, anymore.
