Ginger Slepski, a Pittsburgh woman, claims that a group of black teens beat her in an attack that was “racially motivated.”
Slepski told WPXI-TV that four black teenage girls threw a bottle at her car before beating her and robbing her.
“I thought it was so animalistic. So violent. I’m so afraid for these girls to get out and walk the streets,” Slepski, 32, was quoted as saying.
She added: “They yelled, ‘Shut up white [expletive].’ The other said, ‘Get that white [expletive]’… I do feel like it was very racially motivated.”
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the four girls were between the ages of 14 and 16, and none of their names were released. In the incident, Slepski pulled up to a stop sign before one threw a bottle at her vehicle, said police.
“She gets out to address it, and that’s when the girls jump her,” Lt. Shirley Sloan told the paper.
The girls then grabbed Slepski and pulled her to the ground by her hair before kicking her in the face and head.
Sloan said a witness attempted to intervene by stepping on one of the girl’s feet.
“Another woman was yelling at the girls, ‘I’m calling the police!’ And it’s like it only made it worse,” Slepski told WPXI.
