TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a custodian used the tools of her trade to fight off an attacker in a Southern California high school restroom.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/14NWa2A ) says the woman was cleaning up graffiti in a restroom at Temecula High School on Tuesday night when two men came in.
Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Andy Woods says the woman told them the restroom was closed for cleaning and they had to leave but instead one grabbed her.
Woods says the woman fought back and fell down but she managed to grab an aerosol can of graffiti remover and spray it in the man's face.
Both men ran away and they haven't been found.
The woman wasn't seriously injured. Deputies are investigating the case as an attempted sexual assault.
