I wished then (and still now) to have had the power to stop it. The police didn't particularly care about responding to this type of activity in this particular area.

This video leaves me with a lot of questions. Was there any interaction between him and the victim beforehand? Because I'm speculating that there was some kind of argument, woman walked away, and perp exacted revenge.
There is also the "wrong place, wrong time" thing where this guy was staking out his territory and wanted people to not be walking around there.
Somebody mentioned a muslim connection: was she Arabic?
Maybe he thought he knew her?"We often joke -- and we really wish it were a joke -- that you will only encounter two basic problems with your 'self-defense' training.

The victim said that she had seen a man looking at her when she had briefly gone back into her house to get her mobile phone after leaving it. He then appeared to have followed her down the street. The shocking attack was captured on CCTV. She appears fine now but I expect that the experience will haunt her for some time. The man appears to have followed her for one-third of a mile before attacking

A thug has admitted knocking a 16-year-old girl unconscious in an unprovoked street attack that left her with broken teeth and a split lip.
A court heard Michael Ayoade, 34, who smacked petite teenager Tasneem Kabir around the head as she was walking to college in east London, told police: 'She started it'.
He was arrested thanks to an anonymous tip-off after police released CCTV footage of the shocking attack, which showed Ayoade casually jogging away while Miss Kabir lay unconscious on the ground.
Ayoade later told police that the petite 16-year-old 'didn't have a friendly face', that he was 'intimidated by her' and that she 'made me feel like a pauper with her facial gestures'.
He said he couldn’t cope with 'taking an insult from a little person like that'.
Powerfully built Ayoade, who has a distinctive scar on his cheek, pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm at Thames Magistrates' Court today following the daylight attack in Plaistow, which left the teenager with three broken teeth, a split lip, and bruises and grazes on her face.
Miss Kabir had left home with her brother shortly after 12.30pm on November 13, but realised she had forgotten her phone and went back to retrieve it as her brother walked on.
Prosecutor Bandana Batra told Thames Magistrates Court: 'She remembers seeing the defendant looking at her from the other side of the road as she went back.
'As she came out he was inside the gates to her street and she says he approached her and was within 30cm of her face. She found this strange but she carried on walking.
'Miss Kabir was then walking along High Road, Plaistow and all she remembers next was waking up in the ambulance,' the lawyer said.
Ayoade had followed the teenager, launching his surprise attack as she passed the Black Lion pub.
Ms Batra said: 'He started jogging up behind Miss Kabir and he struck her her on the side of the head causing her to lose consciousness and that’s why she doesn’t remember what happened.'
The girl hit the ground face first following the blow from Ayoade.
Ms Batra said: 'It was an unprovoked attack on in a lone female. She is pretty petite in size - you can see the size of Mr Ayoade.'
When police were searching for her then mystery attacker, Miss Kabir had said: 'I hope he does get caught so he doesn’t do it again to another person. I hope I am his last victim.'
Police received an anonymous phone call informing them of Ayoade's address.
Officers discovered cannabis at his home in Plaistow and he pleaded guilty to possession of a class C drug on November 21.
Ms Batra said: 'He said he admitted to doing it, it was a misunderstanding on his part. He had had too much to drink and smoke that day.'
'He said he was going about his business and was intimidated by her look, she looked like she wanted a fight. She looked about 19 or 20. He did not approve of the way she looked so he went back and punched her....He said "Nah, that hurt, I can’t go further in my day taking an insult from a little person like that".'
'He thought to himself “No, no I am not taking this”,' the lawyer said.
'He never spoke to her, just punched her.'
Marianna Christou, defending, said that Ayoade had come to the UK from Nigeria when he was just three years old, and had to fend from himself from young age. He was said to have no contact with his family.
Ms Christou said: 'He has drunk since he was 16 and smokes up to 10 joints a day which in my submission is excessive and perhaps this causes some degree of paranoia and low self esteem.'
Ayoade was remanded in custody and is due to appear at Inner London Crown Court on a date to be fixed.
