My girlfriend and executive for a large Bay Area corporation and woman of color was assaulted in Michaels. I called Salina, the store manager and her concern was for nothing more than their inventory. A group of 6-7 kids were in the store and were followed around by store personnel. But they allowed her to go to her car alone where she was threatened. 7 youths to one female of 135 lbs is not good. Expect more stories of self protection if Michaels and Vallejo allow this to happen.
