On "Dates From Hell" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on ID) viewers were introduced to Keri Potts. She survived a terrifying ordeal at the hands of a man she met on vacation.
Keri and a friend were enjoying the final day of their trip to Rome, Italy when she agreed to go on a date with a local guy called Marco.
At first the date went well but things turned ugly after they went back to Marco's apartment.
After locking the door he physically assaulted Keri, biting, hitting and scratching her. Keri escaped the attack by jumping off his balcony and climbing across rooftops.
She prosecuted Marco, who was sentenced to five years of probation. Now, Keri speaks out about her ordeal to help others.
