You’re getting something out of your trunk outside a Starbucks store. You see a woman approaching with a cup. No reason for suspicion there, right? Well, for a particular woman in Vancouver there would be plenty to worry about. The woman with the cup walks closer and asks “Hey pretty girl, would you like to drink this?” and before she knew what was happening, the woman, 28 year old Bethany Storro – an attractive and well-liked Safeway clerk – saw the stranger throw the contents of the cup in her face. Instantly she began to burn, and felt her skin bubbling. Her clothes, where the contents of the cup touched them, began to disintegrate. Miss Storro fell to the ground screaming and her assailant ran off.
I hope that this beautiful and well-liked woman can be made whole again, and that her assailant, (perhaps tracked by the purchase of concentrated sulphuric acid?) is quickly apprehended. No one should have to fear or suffer such an assault and this assailant needs to be off the street.
