Jasmine Warren Atlanta carjackersAn Atlanta woman fought off a pair of armed men who attacked her and tried to take her car.

Jasmine Warren knew that she wasn’t about to be a helpless victim when she realized that the two assailants were going to try and steal her car. “This young man came up to me with a gun in my face, and in that very instant, I knew I wanted to do something about it. I wasn’t going to let him try to take my stuff from me,” she told Atlanta’s 11 Alive news.

The Atlanta local stopped for gas on Saturday (May07) when she noticed two young attackers appear from behind the gas pumps and try to take her car. Warren then fought the men off, one of whom pointed a gun at her. Her actions in the situation has drawn mixed reactions, from approval to criticism.

Warren has since made a post to Facebook, addressing the situation and advising others who may find themselves in her situation one day to proceed cautiously. “Trust me when i tell u was beyond scared but i didnt panic for the simple fact i work with these types of teens daily,” she said. “i know what goes on around those parts of dt ATL so i assessed the situation enough to know that if that would have been anybody else prime example a 30 year old man that would have robbed me at gun point like that yes i probably would have given my stuff that easily but becuase I assessed the persons and new what i was working with…my reaction was my reaction.”
