In a bizarre story worthy only of Australia, a jogger claims she was followed and repeatedly assaulted by a kangaroo because she was wearing Sarah Jessica Parker's "Stash," a perfume.

Tracy Noonan described the encounter as something you would see in a "horror movie."
"It just kept coming and coming. I thought: 'Oh my goodness, this kangaroo is going to kill me.'"

@Complex I guess it’s time for a new perfume 🤷🏽♀️— Nikita (@Nikita)1607087080.0
Noonan was kicked over and scratched by the kangaroo before she had the chance to run away.
"I just felt a massive thump in the middle of my back," she said.
"I turned around and it was actually just standing over the top of me."

After seeking shelter in a nearby house, the kangaroo reportedly camped outside for a further 20 minutes before moving on.
"The kangaroo was waiting for me."

Noonan was thankfully okay aside from a kangaroo-foot shaped bruise on her back, and made it home without being pursued by any further trouble.
"Stash" has not been recorded to attract any other marsupials to date--hopefully no more kangaroo attacks will occur in Sarah Jessica Parker's name.
