Try to punch his nose and then hold him by the shoulders and kick hard in his groin area. Once you do this, try to run away into a safe place where you are surrounded by people and inform a friend to come down to be with you.
If attacked from behind
If somebody tries to grab you from behind, do not panic and try to escape by pulling yourself away. This may not work if the man is stronger than you physically and you will get hurt even more. Try to push his hands to your collarbone and then kick his feet with your sandals. Wearing high heels can be really helpful in such situations since they can hurt the predator’s feet real bad.
