Violently Fragile Man Stomps, Shatters Woman's Windshield After Having His Advances Rejected
She told the man, "I'm gay. I'm just not interested."
Some guys can't take no for an answer.
Security camera footage captured a man in Nashville, Tennessee, stomping on the hood and shattering a woman's windshield because she rejected his advances.
According to local news WAVE 3, Bailey Cantrell was approached by the man before the unfortunate attack. She was waiting outside when her friend went into a gas station to purchase some items. Cantrell said the unnamed man asked for her phone number, and she declined. However, he persisted.

"After I declined, still a little bit mad, then the second I declined the third time and said ‘I'm gay, I'm just not interested,’ that's when it triggered him, and he got very aggressive," Cantrell said.
The man then jumped on the hood and started kicking in the windshield.
"The only thing I was thinking while this was going on is he might have a weapon; he might have a knife, a gun, I don't know. So pretty much just flailing every limb to get out of his grip," she said.
She was then unable to see out of her shattered and cracked windshield, so she had to take drastic measures, reports Pink News.
"I only reversed to try to knock him over and make him fall, but that didn't work," she said. "When I got out, I was getting out to grab my phone and call 911 and also, there was glass in my eye from where all that glass hit us. So that was uncomfortable, and I just felt like I needed to get out of the car."
The incident has made her fear for her safety because she only lives a few minutes away from the gas station. As a countermeasure, Cantrell has moved in with her parents in the meantime.
NBC12 reports the man at the center of the incident was a newcomer to Nashville and lived at the rescue mission nearby. Police were called, but they were unable to locate him.
"Since he did this and got away with it, he had no repercussions," she said. "He's going to think 'if a girl rejects me, I can do this to her. I didn't get caught last time.' "
