A man on a moped yelled, “Are you alright, darling?” at Pagan-Lilley Motlagh-Phillips, as she was walking home in London. When she didn’t respond, the man pulled up and “aggressively” demanded an answer. After she again refused, the man threatened to retaliate. And he did — by running her over.
Motlagh-Phillips said she lost consciousness and later woke up in the hospital, where she was diagnosed with internal bruising and had to leave on crutches. The police added insult to injury. After dealing with one officer’s indifference, she sent an email. His boss was even worse.
