“Let go of my baby!” she screamed, launching herself off the ground and seizing the leg of the man nearest her. He went down with a grunt, releasing the daughter, who began striking the other man with her free hand.
Her daughter’s half-freedom gave the mother a burst of adrenaline and she hauled herself up the prone attacker, ascending his legs and leaving bloody gashes with her painted nails. The man screamed in pain. Red lines appeared on his abdomen before she started working on his face and eyes.
Seeing this, the other man abandoned the young girl, and fled.
