CBS Brooklyn, October 20, 2014
A Brooklyn woman spoke out on Monday night, after being attacked by three men in Brooklyn.
Aspiring model Gwendolyn Reyes, 21, told CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez that it was difficult to watch surveillance video of the men who ganged up on her and beat her as she lay helpless on the ground.
The video shows the three men walking in the opposite direction of Reyes. After the first man walks past her, another member of the group suddenly grabs her and pushes her to the wall of a nearby building.
The two struggle, and the man punches her twice, leaving her in a heap on the street. The man who beat her is seen walking away.
The other men are then seen trying to steal the Reyes’ purse that is over her shoulder. She is dragged down the street as the video cuts out.
“I just remember the whole attack, and for them leaving me, I remember them just dragging me, and then I started yelling for someone to help me,” Reyes said. “And then that’s when I realized blood was coming from my face, but I didn’t know where from my face.”
Police said the men got away with her purse and iPhone. Reyes was treated for a broken nose at a local hospital.
