I was out for my run on the Rideau Canal this morning when I got attacked from behind. I felt a whack on the back of my head and then the culprit fled before I could do anything.
As much as it was pretty terrifying, I expect this will be a normal pattern of behaviuor for the next several weeks. I rather doubt the police will take any action either..
The attached story should explain it.
