[ # ] Pauley Perrette was attacked by a homeless man
November 13th, 2015 under Admirable People

Pauley Perrette is one of the kindest actors in Hollywood. She truly cares what happens to everyone and tries to do good and to help everyone out. So it makes what happened to the NCIS star yesterday even more horrifying. While walking to one her guest houses in Hollywood, she was brutally attacked by a homeless man. She feared for her life, but she used her wit and quick thinking to save herself. When he let her go, she ran and called for help. One of those people was a cop from her Church, and she gave him a nearly perfect sketch of the man who attacked her. The sketch was so good, they were able to capture him immediately. Getting him off the streets and hopefully getting him the help he needs.
When it comes to Pauley, her bravery and quick thinking should be commended. It is hard to know what to do that in that situation, but she did the right things and that is why she able to tell her story for people to learn what to do in a situation like hers.
About a year ago, I too was attacked by homeless man a few miles from where was attacked. I crossed the street to get away from him, locked myself in the gas station’s store and called the police. I filed a report, hoping to get him captured and get him the help he needed. After weeks of trying to find him. We never did. I wish I tried harder because he looks like the man who attacked Perrette and I pray it wasn’t the same guy. I didn’t file the report to protect myself, but to stop him from attacking others. I feel like I failed. I am sorry Pauley.
And we as a society are failing, we need to help these people and not throw them away with the trash. With meds, they might be able to live a normal life. We need to do more to help the mentally ill, so they don’t attack others.
I can tell you there are ramifications for the victims. I am still affected by it to this day, a year and a half later. I am still nervous to walk and even drive near where it happened, and it’s a few blocks from where I live. When I saw the photo of the man who attacked Perrette on Entertainment Tonight, I went numb and cried. There is nothing he can do to me, but it doesn’t mean I still can’t get scared. I hope no else ever goes through this. We should all feel safe where we live. Is that too much to ask for?
