Tulsa Police are still on the hunt for a serial rapist and many women fear for their safety.
Stores that sell pepper spray are selling so much of it that they can barely keep up with the demand.
Oklahoma Police Supply General Manager Gabby Fuson tells KRMG her store normally sells about 100 cans of pepper spray in three or four months. Since the assault suspect has been on the loose, she says her store has sold at least that many in about one week.
“We can’t keep up with the girls coming in to get them.” Fuson said.
She said it’s not just women who come in and by the pepper spray, but men are coming in to stock up for the women in their lives.
“Husbands, brothers and friends of people that they’re trying to look out for.” Fuson said. “And they’re not just buying one, they’re buying two or three.” She added.
Fuson says women are scared, but she says that’s a good thing.
“Being afraid heightens your sense of awareness, which is fabulous. Don’t be afraid, be ready.” She said.
Oklahoma Police Supply just received another shipment of pepper spray on Monday, so now is the time to go if you or someone you know needs it.
