I agree that they are important, but a man masterbating in front of a woman and child should be considered extremely unstable and dangerous. What he was doing is without question in my mind aggressive. If he grabs the child you have lost your opportunity to pull your weapon and fleeing is not an option. Fleeing immediately would be a poor choice in my mind also. If he chased her while she was carrying the child she would not stand a chance
