Friday Heroine: Jasmine Warren refused to be a victim and fought back her attackers “I forgive them.”

…don’t be a victim anytime

On Saturday night, Jasmine Warren fought back against two men who attacked her and tried to steal her car at a gas station in Atlanta around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday. The two punch and drag Warren while struggling to drive off with her vehicle in an incident caught on surveillance video.

“This young man came up to me with a gun in my face, and in that very instant, I knew I wanted to do something about it,” “I wasn’t going to let him try to take my stuff from me.” – Warren .

“They were just as scared as I was. When I looked at that little boy’s eyes he was just as scared as me,” she told WXIA. “Honestly he was fumbling. It was a lot.”

When one of the men did point his gun at her, Warren said she was not sure what could have happened.

“As many times as he kept saying that he was going to do it, he didn’t do it. He wouldn’t do it,” Warren said. “So I don’t know if the gun was loaded, you know you never really know.”

Still, Warren said she has a message for the carjackers as police continue to search for suspects.

“I forgive them,” .

“You’re wrong for trying to rob from me,” she said. “It’s not the end of the world for you. It doesn’t mean that you can’t change and make changes in your life.” .

“It’s up to you and I’m willing to help you make those changes,” she added. “It doesn’t make you a bad person. You’ve done something bad but you can always be forgiven for it.”
