'They were so frightened': Josie Gibson claims the police did nothing to help after her sister and dog were attacked by a 'young male in broad daylight'
Josie Gibson has claimed the police did nothing to help after her sister and dog were attacked by a 'young male.'
The former Big Brother star, 36, claimed that despite reporting the 'frightening' attack to the authorities, nothing has been done after a man tried to tackle her 18-year-old sister to the ground.
Josie revealed the terrifying ordeal after many women spoke about their own experiences with harassment, following the death of Sarah Everard earlier this month.
Speaking to The Sun, Josie said her sister was tackled to the ground by a young male who also grabbed her pet dog and threw it on the pavement.
She said: 'A young male picked up my little dog and threw him to the ground and then he rugby tackled my 18-year-old baby sister in broad daylight down to the ground.
'It was only that both my sisters are a bit like me and they'll put up a bit of a fight. They were screaming at him.
'I think in the end he thought, 'I'm not going to get anywhere with these girls because there's two of them' and he ran off in the end.'
Josie added that her sisters were both 'so frightened' by the ordeal, and despite reporting the incident the police have done nothing.
It comes after 33-year-old marketing executive Sarah 'vanished into thin air' after leaving a friend's house in Clapham, south London at around 9pm on Wednesday, March 3.
Wayne Couzens, a diplomatic protection officer based at the Palace of Westminster, was arrested on Tuesday night over the disappearance.
It was later confirmed that a body found in Kent woodland this week was in fact Sarah Everard, and inquest into her death has been adjourned until after Couzen's trial, scheduled for September.
In the wake of Sarah's disappearance, women took to social media by the thousands to stress that the vulnerability felt when walking alone in the dark resonates with almost all women.
In January Josie was forced to quit social media for six days after spending too much time 'reading into all the negativity.'
She tweeted: 'Right I am off my phone and social until the 13th Jan so if I don't reply I'm not being rude.
'I just keep finding myself on my phone and reading into all the negativity and it's not healthy for anyone.
'I actually feel like Al I'm on my phone so much it's disturbing. (sic)'
Josie previously revealed her weight loss plans, aiming to transform her size 18 figure to a size 12 after falling back into 'unhealthy habits' of overeating bread and chocolate.
The TV star told MailOnline that she no longer feels 'sexy' and only sees herself as a 'working mum' now her body is at an 'uncomfortable size'.
She explained: 'I have obviously been big my whole life - I have always been one of those people that's struggled with my weight.
'In 2013 I lost weight and then I started putting it on again when I had my son in 2019 and it's getting to a point now where I feel really, really uncomfortable. I feel uncomfortable with the size I am. I am a size 18.
'I would like to be a comfortable 12 or a 12-14. I would be so happy with that. I have been a size 8. I don't think it suits me and it's a lot of work to get there so I just need to find that happy medium. A size 12 would be ideal.'
