1993, Kat, aged 13
I’d come into town after school with friends. I was 13 and wearing my school uniform. We got off the bus at the old bus station and were walking up Talbot Road in a row of three. I was on one of the ends. I looked up and saw a scruffy man coming towards us. I caught his eye but looked away and carried on walking. As we passed him he grabbed my bum really hard. I stopped momentarily but he carried on walking as if nothing had happened. He didn’t look back. My friends hadn’t noticed and it seemed neither had anyone around us so I just kept walking. I felt horrible about it for ages but didn’t tell anyone because I thought it was my fault because I’d made eye contact with him.
