Aungelique Proctor, Fox 5, June 1, 2016

A family in Lawrenceville said they were attacked by a total stranger just because they were flying an American Flag.

Amina Ahra, 30, was arrested on two counts of simple battery after being accused of attacking a mother and daughter at their home.

Dami Arno told police she was in the garage talking with her daughter when she said Ahra came out of the woods wearing a full Burka, grabbed the flag from off the mailbox and charged at them.

She said she still cannot believe it all happened on American soil.


Arno said when Ahra grabbed the flag; the two women began to fight. That is when Arno’s 17-year-old daughter jumped in and her 14-year-old son grabbed the family gun.


Ahra remained in the Gwinnett County Adult Detention Center as of Wednesday evening.
