"COLOMBO (Reuters) - Four Sri Lankan men got more than they bargained for when they tried to molest two women in a central Sri Lankan town -- only to find one of their would-be victims was a karate champion, a newspaper said on Thursday.
The men had grabbed the two women and dragged them into a bush by the road leading to the town of Matale when one of women started to fight back, said the Daily News.
It said two of the men were felled by neat blows ``where men are most vulnerable,'' while the other two bolted.
The newspaper identified the women as Dulcia Sirisena, who was recently named Grand Champion at the Open Karate Championships in India.
The four assailants were later arrested by police."
