Bethenny Frankel, renowned for her role on "The Real Housewives of New York," recently disclosed a harrowing encounter she experienced several months ago in New York City, shedding light on a disturbing trend of random attacks against women in Manhattan.

The revelation surfaced within a wave of unsettling narratives shared by female victims throughout the city this week. In a TikTok video by a fashion student recounting a random assault, Frankel, 53, bravely shared her own ordeal in the comments section.

She revealed being a victim of a similar incident on the Upper West Side while innocently recording a bakery. However, her comment was swiftly removed, though not before Page Six captured it. While inquiries were made to Frankel's representatives for comment, the NYPD swiftly responded to the alarming surge in assaults against women.

They apprehended a suspect linked to at least one of the attacks, emphasizing his extensive criminal record and recidivist behavior. The NYPD's assertive stance on combating such violence was reiterated, with assurances of continued vigilance to safeguard communities.

NYC Assaults: Frankel Absent, Concerns Arise

Interestingly, Frankel herself was absent from the city during the proliferation of these distressing accounts. She has been in Australia for the past few weeks, engaging in a speaking tour alongside her daughter, Bryn.

The timing and prevalence of these assaults have sparked concern and speculation regarding their potential connection. However, a police spokesperson told USA Today that the link between the incidents remained uncertain. As the public grapples with these unsettling occurrences, the community's resilience and law enforcement's swift action offer a beacon of hope.

Nevertheless, the prevalence of such violence underscores the ongoing need for heightened awareness and measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all residents, particularly women navigating urban environments. The collective response to these incidents serves as a reminder of the importance of community solidarity and proactive law enforcement efforts in addressing and deterring such reprehensible acts.
