What is it with people exposing themselves?

Seriously. There are individuals out there who actually get a thrill from exposing themselves to innocent passers-by, and it's wrong on so many levels.

Indecent exposure is illegal in the United States...

Indecent exposure varies from nudity to masturbation in public. It is also known as sexual misconduct, and it is a matter not to be taken lightly.

Yet many are still found guilty of this crime...

Numerous women every day fall victim to indecent exposure, and it is often just brushed off lightly and forgotten about.

One woman in Massachusetts did not let herself become a victim...

A mom of 2, who identifies as Aia, was going out for a jog in her local area in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

A seemingly innocent encounter captured on CCTV...

Speaking to CBS Boston, Aia recalls that she passed the unnamed man when she was jogging and noticed that he pulled his pants down as he jogged by.

She quickly turns around to confront the man...

Aia recalls how the man exposed himself for a second time during their exchange, and it doesn't take her long to clock on to what is happening. She swiftly turns around to confront the pervert.

Oh, and did I mention?

Aia works as a personal trainer and is an Israeli military veteran... and also stands at 6ft and 1 inches tall. The man has certainly picked the wrong woman to violate...

The footage sees Aia try to talk to the man...

In Aia's words, "It was not his lucky day because I decided it's just not gonna happen." The man was clearly not expecting her to confront him, and he is seen to look flustered when the personal trainer asks for his name; he cowardly attempts to run away.

Aia took matters into her own hands...

In her interview with CBS, she claims to have grabbed the man and pinned him down out of the CCTV's view. "When I was holding him down, he was terrified!" Aia recalls.

Aia called for help as she had the pervert pinned down...

But nobody responded to her calls for help, and simply ignored her. "At least four people went by and nobody reacted," she recalls.

With the lack of help, Aia had nobody but herself to rely on...

"I'm holding this guy down and nobody is doing anything, so I had to do something..." This made Aia use her initiative and call the police herself. But this meant her letting go briefly of the man, and he quickly escaped.

Aia had a message to deliver...

She arrived at State Police Barracks - on a motorcycle, by the way - and stated: "People! Respond for God's sake. If somebody is saying 'call the police,' everybody tries to stay away and not get involved... five minutes later I could have been raped in the corner? You guys really too busy with your day to not call the police?"

Aia's message is truly eye-opening...

If a woman who wasn't as physically strong as Aia was attempted to handle the situation, things could have ended much worse. Women can fall victim to horrific crimes such as sexual assault and abuse at the hands of these sick and twisted individuals, and it's lucky that Aia is the strong and powerful woman that she is.

CBS has made an appeal for the suspect...

They described him as a "short, white man with a heavy build and dark-colored hair who was last seen running in the Cambridge area."

It is important to do everything that we can to stop criminals like these...

It is not only a crime to indecently expose one's self in public, but it is also a violation. Aia did the right thing by standing up to the anonymous man, but the situation could have become much more dangerous. It is so important to help out one another in situations such as these and we can succeed in locking up these dangers to society. Want to hear about another badass woman taking down a creep?
