Via Instapundit, Jackie Daniki is looking for assistance in finding a low-life that allegedly assualted her. To be clear, I say allegedly because I have no idea who Jackie Daniki is and she wasn't very clear on what happened.

I had a similar experience when I visited London a few years ago...and I'm NOT a woman. I'm not even especially handsome. I'm 6'4" and have fairly average looks. Apparently, being tall is a real turn-on over there. On the tubes, I was physically assualted twice, by women, just looking to cop a feel. On several other occasions, women would make a remark such as "aren't you tall dark and handsome" in front of everyone and quite loudly.

My wife and twin daughters were also accosted almost constantly by men looking for a good time. They weren't "handled" in any way, but some of the young men were quite persistent in trying to get a date or just a few hours of thier time. Luckily, size works wonders in chasing off these punks. We stopped using the tubes and found that the open-deck tour buses were excellent transportation.

I came away from London with the impression that the people were very forward and not the least bit shy. According to Jackie, they are also getting more agressive.
