The Bachelor’s Bekah Martinez Says She Was Sexually Assaulted While Walking with Her Children
Bekah Martinez, who appeared on Arie‘s season of The Bachelor, is opening up about a sexual assault she experience this week.
The 26-year-old reality star says that she was assaulted by a teenager on Friday (March 26) while on a walk with her two kids.
“I was just out taking a walk, looking like this, pushing my sleeping baby and holding hands with my toddler, when a teenager skateboarded by and grabbed my ass,” Bekah wrote in an Instagram post. I felt totally powerless as I screamed at him “THAT IS NOT OKAY. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU?” I wanted to chase him down and pull him off his skateboard. Punch him in the back. Do something, anything to get through to him that what he did was so wrong.”
Bekah shared the below photo to show what she looked like when the assault happened.
“He looked so casual, not even in a rush, as he whizzed on past down the sidewalk, only glancing back when he was a block away. Ruth was so shaken. She kept repeating in her 2-year-old voice, ‘you okay, mommy?’ I’m not okay. I’m mad,” Bekah said.
“I’m mad that this kid felt bold enough to touch me in the middle of the day, in a neighborhood, with my children by my side. What the f–k is he going to do to a woman when he’s an adult in the cover of night? I’m mad that this isn’t the first time. I remember being alone on the beach at 21 when a man walked up to me with his d-ck in his hand. I felt helpless then, too,” Bekah continued. “I hate this. I hate that this is the world my daughter will grow up in.”
She concluded, “I don’t care what you have to do to teach your sons to respect the people around them. Threaten to chop their balls off, I don’t give a f–k. But I hate knowing that there are predators around every turn, every corner. And the world will always be unsafe for women.”
Last year, Bekah went viral when she shared a video of herself breastfeeding both of her kids at the same time.
