Woman Hit With A Brick For Not Giving Her Number To Cat-Calling Man
A woman has gone viral on social media for her extensive injuries after a man threw a brick at her for not giving out her number. The woman’s video, taken from her stay at the hospital, showed her breaking down in tears as she explained the story.
The footage was re-shared by online tabloid TheNeighborhoodTalk.
“What have I ever to anybody in my life to deserve this?” shared the injured woman. “I have never done anything in my life to hurt anybody. Literally a man asked me for my number and I said, ‘No.’ And he picked up a brick, in front of so many men, and was like, ‘What are you going to do?'”

The bystanders, she said, watched the man not only throw the brick at her to flee the scene by car. From her hospital room, the battered woman was clearly at a loss for how so many people could allow the incident to unfold. She continued bashing the assaulter and the men who believe this behavior is acceptable.
“How is this OK? This is what y’all are doing to women,” she said.
The catcalling of women going about their business by unrelenting men is a never-ending problem that is leading to women facing more severe actions against them. The bystanders have also not been reprimanded, but are a part of a problem since they did not intervene.
The woman’s injuries include a knot that takes over half of her face; she is currently seeking treatment in hopes that the swelling lessens. As for the man who threw the brick, his whereabouts are currently unknown.
According to The Shade Room, the incident occurred in Houston. Newsweek wrote that it had reached out to the Houston Police Department for more information but had yet to hear back.
