A 17-year-old is beaten and robbed by a girl gang in West Baltimore. The entire thing was caught on cell phone camera and shared repeatedly on the web. Now the victim’s mother speaks with WJZ.
Meghan McCorkell has more on what she wants done.
The victim’s mother says she wants people to see the video so they can identify the girls who attacked her daughter.
It’s the disturbing video that’s been posted all over the Internet: a 17-year-old Baltimore County girl violently beaten and robbed by a group of girls on Tuesday.
“They punched her, they kicked her and mostly they stomped her in the head,” the victim’s mother said.
The victim’s mother, who didn’t want to be identified, says the group that attacked her daughter is part of the “Sisterhood” gang.
“I just think something really needs to be done about these gangs because every time we turn the TV on, it’s another gang after somebody else’s child,” the victim’s mother said.
The incident happened just blocks from Mondawmin Mall, where the teen says she was headed for a job interview.
According to a police report obtained by WJZ, a school police officer at Frederick Douglass High School witnessed the gang of girls trying to pick fights near the school. The officer followed the group and kept them moving.
