How to spot a dangerous person
If you are in a public place and are approached by someone, it can be helpful to know how to spot someone who is dangerous or violent. This will help you to avoid a situation which could get you injured or even killed, and help you to protect your loved ones as well. This can come in particularly useful if you are travelling at night, or in a quiet area where there may not be many other people around.
Trust your instincts
Everyone knows that uneasy feeling you get when you see certain people. Trust these feelings and avoid someone who your instincts are telling you is dangerous. Even if you have no evidence to back this up, keep your distance or use caution either way.
Look for someone who is watching you
Obviously we all glance at others in the street as we pass them, but keep an eye out for someone who seems to be actively following you, and trying not to bring attention to themselves.
If you are walking through a dangerous area or expect there to be trouble, keep your keys in your hand to be used as a weapon if necessary and look for busy areas and brightly lit portions of the street to stick to. This means that you will feel safer and walk with more confidence, even if you don’t come across any danger.
Be prepared to react physically and vocally
If you are approached by someone who you feel is dangerous then you should be prepared to act strongly and raise your voice to scare them away. This confidence will often cause potential attackers to move away.Open Claim Calculator
