The only survivor of a brutal attack took the stand to recount her horrific tale. According to a New York Criminal Lawyer, the woman was at a local playground socializing with friends and listening to music when the suspects arrived and allegedly started the attack with left her friends and brother dead, and her with half her face paralyzed.
The suspects allegedly pulled down her shorts and began to sexually assault her, and as she cried for help, they executed her brother and the two friends. Then, using a machete, the suspects began to hack at her neck, apparently trying to decapitate the poor woman. Obviously, they failed to remove her head, but they did end up shooting her in the head. She miraculously survived and was able to take the stand. The attack is reported by a New York Criminal Lawyer to have been part of a gang initiation.
The defendant showed no emotion as his crimes were recounted, said a New York Criminal Lawyer. The victim was nineteen years old at the time of the attack, and in college. No word was given as to whether or not she was able to return to her studies. Her name was withheld.
