This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
I am sorry to hear you have endured this situation.
I suggest that anytime you feel you are in imminent danger
of harm to your person, you can legally use the spray in self defense. You are legally permitted to use "Reasonable" efforts in protection
For purposes of the self-defense legal defense, “reasonable under the circumstances” means that you need to have:
1 Reasonably believed that you were in imminent danger of being killed, injured, or touched unlawfully
2 Reasonably believed that you needed to use force to prevent that from happening, and
3 Used no more force than was necessary to prevent that from happening.
Please note that I can only provide information for what you ask. In that regard, if you have other questions or need clarification, please let me know here. Otherwise, I would appreciate a Positive Rating as that is how I get credit for my time.
