That’s when, the girl said, he grabbed her by her shirt, she struggled, and he struck her in the face — causing her to fall. She told investigators that the young man knelt on top of her and pulled out a “black-handled, double-edged mechanical knife” which he used to cut off her ponytail.
According to the victim, she was then dragged into a water puddle before she was released, and all three men ran from the scene.READ MORE: Fourth Stimulus Check: Will You See Another Relief Payment Soon?
