Visitor gets physically accosted near Market bar

I was just visiting Ottawa for a couple weeks in December of 2008. It was just after 9pm. I was in the byward with friends when I decided to go off by myself to get a coffee. I walked passed the Honest Lawyer and noticed a couple guys being loud and drunk. I tried to avoid them by walking around them but it was too late. One of the guys ran up to me and picked me up and threw me over his shoulder. I froze i didn’t have time to react. All that came out was WTF! After carrying me around for a couple seconds he finally put me down and laughed with his friend about it and kept walking. Looking back, I wish I was prepared enough to fight back. I am prepared now since I’ve been taking martial arts training.
