Bekah Martinez is bravely telling her story. The Bachelor alum shared a lengthy post on Instagram, detailing her recent sexual assault. She was groped while on a walk with her two young children, Ruth, and Franklin.
“I was just out taking a walk, looking like this, pushing my sleeping baby and holding hands with my toddler, when a teenager skateboarded by and grabbed my ass,” she wrote about the sexual assault. “I felt totally powerless as I screamed at him ‘THAT IS NOT OKAY. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU?’ I wanted to chase him down and pull him off his skateboard. Punch him in the back. Do something, anything to get through to him that what he did was so wrong. He looked so casual, not even in a rush, as he whizzed on past down the sidewalk, only glancing back when he was a block away.”

Bekah continued to explain how her 2-year-old daughter reacted to the sexual assault:
Fellow members of Bachelor Nation are supporting Bekah in the comments. “I’m reading this while blow drying my hair and had to stop and go sit down because I got so internally hot and angry,” Becca Tilley wrote. “My blood is boiling got you. I’m so sorry this happened.”
Jade Roper commented, “I’m so sorry this happened to you today, Bekah. This made my heart race and my stomach drop reading this knowing too what that helpless, angry, violating, humiliating, bewildered feeling feels like. I promise I will raise my boys to be far better.”
Sending you love, Bekah.
