Emilia Holden, a waitress at Vinnie Van Go-Go's in Savannah, Georgia was working her shift when a man came up from behind her and groped her!
The man can be seen grabbing her backside in the surveillance video. He tries to walk away but Holden immediately turns him around, takes him by the neck and slams him to the ground.
“I looked at him and I said, ‘You don’t touch me, motherf—–!’ ” Holden tells PEOPLE. “I didn’t even think, I just reacted. I don’t know how I reacted the way I did. I’ve never done that before.”
Holden had a co-worker call the police where the perp, Ryan Cherwinski, was arrested and charged with sexual battery.
