I went to the bus stop this morning to go to work, and there was some guy I'd never seen before waiting at the stop. I think nothing of it, walk up to the bus stop and place my lunch box on the garbage can like I always do. After about a minute or so, the other guy at the stop turns around and notices me. He gets right up in my face and makes one of those 'metal mad faces'. You know, the one where the lips look like: Code: \/\/\/\/ /\/\/\/\ and I'm like, get outa my face dude. He takes a step back, then barrels right into me! Mind you, we haven't said a word to each other. He bounces me off the telephone pole and throws me to the ground, then starts punching and kicking me. I start kicking back and pushing him away, but it's difficult because I'm on the ground and this guy is on top of me. We wrestled and traded punches for a couple minutes, and I get in a good kick that knocks him away from me. At this point, he completely stops, and walks into the convenience store. I'm like OMG!?!?!?! ***!?!?!?!!? and call 911. I'm describing the situation to the dispatcher and this guy comes out of the store, and proceeds to get some cash from the ATM, and talk to a couple of teen-aged girls that saw the end of our struggle. I have no idea what he said to them, they left. Anyway, this guy is not paying any attention to me at all whatsoever. He actually ends up standing with a bunch of kids who were waiting for their school bus and the bus stop happens to be right in front of the police station when the cops finally catch up to him. So this guy tells the cops that he had had problems with me before and that he just couldn't keep it bottled up anymore and that's why he attacked me. I've never seen this guy before in my life. Weird thing is, the cops are like "You sure you've never seen this guy before? Because he lives really close to you, you know". I figure this guy must live at the halfway house at the end of our block but I don't know, they didn't give me his address. The guy must have some kind of history though because he was arrested (he did tell the cops he attacked me too). I was surprised they arrested him on only my word. What I'm worried about is this guy is going to get out at some point and he'll be living on my street. So, has anyone else ever been attacked out of the blue without any provocation whatsoever?
