UPDATE: Well, cr@p. Somethings are too good to be true. The DailyMail is a reliable source ... but no one is perfect;
News outlets across the world are reporting the dramatic story of a female U.S. sailor who fended off a knife-wielding attacker in Dubai and put him in a leg lock.
Turns out, the story is probably bogus — at least the part about the woman being a U.S. sailor.
Navy officials have uncovered no record of such a woman, and there were no U.S. Navy ships in Port Khalid, where her ship was said to have been in port. ... It’s possible the woman, identified in one report as simply “MJ,” was a civilian mariner from the U.S.
Now here is the American female Sailor that I know!
Victim? Yea, right, here's a title for 'ya from the DailyMail;
US sailor thwarts Dubai bus driver rapist after putting him in strangehold with her thighs and then beating him into submission.The details;
An off-duty US navy sailor wrestled a bus driver to the ground and beat him into submission after he attempted to rape her at knife point, a court heard yesterday.
Prosecutors said that she knocked the knife from his hand, broke it in two, bit him in the hand, forced him to the ground and locked him between her thighs.
The woman, 28, was on 24-hour shore leave in Dubai and was attacked as she returned to the port where she was based after a day shopping.
She had been attempting to hail a taxi after visiting shopping centre, Mall of the Emirates and a supermarket when a bus pulled up next to her.
After climbing aboard she became suspicious of the drivers route. She said: ‘I noticed he did not take the main road and when I asked him he told me not to worry.’That is who you want giving SAPR training.
He then drove for a further 10 minutes before stopping in an area where other buses were parked and attempting to kiss her.
When she refused him he pulled the knife and threatened to rape her but she was able to subdue him.
