Teen Sisters Hurt During Stockton Protest Felt Targeted Because They Are White

Angela Musallam, CBS Sacramento, September 21, 2016

Stockton police are searching for the suspects in a vicious attack that happened on Friday against two teenaged sisters.

Police say a group of protestors wearing Black Lives Matter shirts held a vigil and a protest near the intersection of Pacific and Yokuts avenues.

Protestors were remembering Colby Friday, an African-American man who was shot and killed by Stockton police in August after he ignored an officer’s commands to drop his handgun.

Police say two Caucasian girls left a local restaurant and passed by the protest when they were attacked by the protestors.

According to police, the two female victims say they felt the attack was racially-fueled because they are white.

Police are not releasing any details about what led up to the attack but say the sisters suffered non-life threatening injuries to their faces and bodies.
