Bethenny Frankel, former star of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” has added her voice to a growing chorus of young women speaking out about random street attacks in New York City. Her revelation comes just days after similar accounts began circulating on TikTok, shedding light on a disturbing trend.

In a now-deleted comment captured by Page Six, Bethenny Frankel recounted her own experience of being assaulted a few months ago on the Upper West Side of NYC while innocently filming a bakery. The alarming incident underscores the pervasive nature of street violence and the vulnerability faced by women in urban environments.

While it remains unclear if these attacks are connected, some speculate a link to the “knockout game” trend, with at least one arrest reported in connection with a related assault. Despite the prevalence of such incidents, many victims may hesitate to share their experiences publicly.

Speaking to Glamour, one victim described the disorienting nature of the attacks, highlighting the importance of remaining vigilant and aware of one’s surroundings, particularly in crowded areas. The recent surge in violent crimes, including incidents on the NYC subway, further underscores the need for increased personal safety measures.

In light of these unsettling events, it’s crucial for individuals, especially women, to prioritize their safety by avoiding distractions, such as excessive phone use, and taking precautions when navigating public spaces. Additionally, prompt reporting of any incidents to law enforcement can help ensure accountability and prevent further harm in the community.
