The video is difficult to watch. A cell phone camera captured several people who appear to be juveniles – and possibly some adults – grabbing Thurston around the face and neck while shoving her off the vehicle. The mother who Thurston gave her seat to said the attackers threw bottles at her and tried to chock (sp) her.
Thurston said her arm was bruised, and her neck was hurt in the attack. The back of her jacket was ripped and shredded. She said she is still suffering emotionally from the assault.
