Pest gets more than he bargained for when he groped the power-lifter in the backside during her visit to the capital.
A young American tourist in Dublin for the weekend put a pervert in his place when she punched him in the face after he groped her on the street.
Power-lifter Leanna Carr posted a picture of her bruised fist on Facebook after boxing the pest, who had brazenly grabbed her backside as she strolled through town.
The 26-year-old, who said she had never punched anyone in her life before, was in Ireland as part of a three-week solo trip around Europe.
Brave Leanna was walking near Aston Quay on Tuesday when she felt someone grab her behind.
She wrote wrote online: "While walking down the street in Dublin earlier this week, a man grabbed my butt.
"He proceeded to laugh hysterically and said 'you’re an American, you probably liked it'.
"Apparently traveling solo has made me a better person because my first reaction was to punch him in the face."
Speaking toIndependent.ie, Leanna said she had never punched anyone before.
She recalled: “I am never a violent person, and I have never punched anyone before... but I became so angry and had so much adrenaline that my reaction was to punch him. I got him on the cheek bone, hard.
“I started yelling a couple more things to him like ‘don’t ever touch a girl like that again, I could get you arrested’. He became very mad and I thought he was going to hit back.
