Megan’s Story

I had just got off my bus into Belfast, and when I was walking home I was aware of a group of young men riding bicycles on the footpath towards me. I walked over to the other side of the footpath to avoid them riding into me, but one of the boys decided to go out of his way to swerve towards me, lean out, and scream into my face. This was my first time returning to Belfast in over a month, and within 2 minutes of me arriving I’d already had the crap scared out of me. I had to sit down and gather myself afterwards, I don’t understand why anyone would feel the need to scream into someone’s face for no reason, let alone nearly hit them with a bicycle!! I did absolutely nothing to provoke them and I’ve been scared to walk home at night ever since.
