My sister was sexually assaulted by a male individual at Alpine Village last year during Oktoberfest. I started hitting him with my hands with in seconds I inhaled what was pepper spray. I completely froze, I felt someone grabb my arms back and new it must have been security. During this time my eyes were closed because I felt the spray on the left side of my face. Witnesses that helped me say that the spray was all over my left ear. That whole night my left ear was burning. A week later I suddenly felt my left ear pop and almost instantly super nauseas. When I went to the doctor they said i had Acute sensory-neuro hearing loss and he couldn't confirm if the mace was the one that caused it but did say it was a possibility. I have 50% hearing loss and tinitis in my left ear and vertigo.
