Girl beaten and thrown from car near arboretum on 4/21

At 730pm on 4/21 residents on 29th Avenue East and East Roy street heard a woman screaming and screaming, then begging “Help me! Someone help me!”  The African American woman, who appeared to be in her late teens or early 20’s, stated that she was not from the area, didn’t know where she was, and had been beaten by two acquaintances, then thrown from a black, newer, jeep grand cherokee.  Her face bleeding and much of her hair in the street, she lay approximately 100 feet south of her belongings, with visible drag marks on the back of her clothing.  It appeared that she’d been ejected from the car at the point where her belongings lay, then dragged 100 feet south before the car careened at high speed southbound around the corner of 29th Avenue East then westbound on Roy street.  During the flight up Roy the car swerved to avoid a parked car then nearly hit two pedestrians.  Fire then police responded to the scene.

  1. This article should have been much longer and should not end abruptly. We need more details on the savages who did this.

  2. Note that this was posted by a resident who witnessed the event, not by editors of CDNews

  3. I’m a neighbor, not a journalist, and posted all the info I had. If CD news is able to glean more from the police, that would be great. Since the woman knew the people involved, maybe they’ve been arrested since then. I certainly didn’t want to speculate, and instead posted only my observations.

  4. “We can only hope for proper justice.”

    Actually we can also hope that the victim doesn’t recant, go back to her relationship with her abuser(s) and send them gunning for the witnesses who came out of their homes to help her. Domestic violence assaults are so difficult to prosecute because victims frequently recant.
