A white woman said she was beaten by teens who used wooden boards and sticks in South Baltimore on Halloween night. Cops have not released any description of the suspects, except to say that some appeared as young as 13.
The crime happened while she was walking in a section known as Federal Hill neighborhood. She is not the only person who was beaten, as Baltimore police report eight people were assaulted and/or robbed in several incidents Halloween night in South Baltimore.
The woman, who did not want to give her name, said she was attacked as she was walking to Barfly’s restaurant to meet friends when about 10 teenagers came out of an alley.
“I had a red down-like vest on, so they grabbed the back of my vest and then held me, and then out in front of them came six young women with wood pieces that were like maybe an inch thick and about three feet long,” she said. “They started hitting me with the wood, in the knees, a lot in my face,” she said.
She suffered a broken eye socket, broken nose and lacerations on both of her knees.
A stranger did come to her rescue and scared the teens away. “He kept apologizing that he was late, but he came right on time and I’m completely thankful for that,” the female victim said. She also said she’s thankful to be alive.
The victim said the teens took her cellphone. She also said she is glad she fought back, but doesn’t understand why they would want to harm her.
