“Dear PoPville,

A woman was physically attacked on 2nd St. between T St and Seaton Place NE across the street from McKinley. The assault took place around 11:30 PM EST Saturday night, one block from the victims’ home. She was walking from T St towards Seaton when a group of girls came running from behind and forcefully pushed her to the ground.

Although they were girls, this was no child’s play. The group of around 7 girls pushed the victim down on the sidewalk, and repeatedly kicked and punched her in the face and body. There was no provocation prior to the incident whatsoever, no words were spoken, no name calling. They just came running full speed behind and pushed her down and started attacking. They did NOT ask for money, however, they did grab her cell phone after it fell out of her pocket during the assault. A police report has been filed. (more…)
