A 70-year-old woman was brutally beaten on a Metro bus in the Eagle Rock area, apparently because she looked Asian, even though she is Mexican American.
A second attack with apparent racial motives also occurred on Wednesday in Los Angeles. This attack would be the second in less than a week in the city.
In the case of the 70-year-old victim, who suffered severe injuries, the prosecution told NBC4 that the suspect will face charges related to a racial hate crime, and one charge of abuse with injuries to an elderly person.
The images show the severity of the injuries of Mrs. Becky, after being brutally assaulted last Friday when she got off the bus of the route 81 of the METRO in front of an Eagle Rock supermarket.
His son spoke with NBC4 about the serious condition his mother is in.
“She is badly beaten. Her eyes were closed, her whole face was swollen, she was all beaten, very bad, and the girl [attacker] wanted to pull out my mother’s hair,” said the victim’s son.
A 23-year-old Black woman was arrested after this incident. According to the victim’s son, the alleged aggressor yelled racial insults against Mrs. Becky, thinking from her features that she was Asian. According to the son, no one on the bus intervened to stop the beating.”The black girl threw her to the ground, and she started hitting my mom on the head, and no one helped my mom,” said the victim’s son.
