His fiancée accused him of lifting her completely off the ground by her neck until she began to lose consciousness.

Local police are warning women not to walk alone at night and to take a self-defense course such as the ones that the local police station offers every month.

In Helsinki, Finland a Female Shop Assistant at a local convenience store stopped two suspects who were reportedly trying to steal cases of beer from the store where she worked. She stopped the two as they were exiting the store. That’s when she shot pepper spray into the face of one of the suspects. She then grabbed his clothing and attempted to pull him back into the shop. The store owner says that their employees have been forced to use pepper spray a number of times to stop potential thieves. He pointed out that police response is negligible because their resources are small and penalties are really insignificant which is why petty theft is out of control.
