(June 22) Last night on Lincoln, in between Idaho and Oregon st. in North Park I was walking home by myself when I was suddenly pushed to the ground from behind and immediately began taking punches by [what felt like] two men. They unsuccessfully attempted to sexually assault me while beating me then fled. I was sent to the hospital and was told I have a fractured nose, my right eye was swollen shut until just a couple of hours ago, the police, nurses, and doctors think I was dragged due to road rash, along with third degree burns from the soup I was carrying. Both of my hands are badly bruised. I look like a completely different person right now.
I'm not the only woman this has happened to, rather the sixth. This happened three blocks from where I live, the woman before me was assaulted on the 17th of this month. TUESDAY. I want everyone in the community to know this is happening, especially all of the women who live in my neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods. Please keep an eye out for one another and be safe. I love you all so much.
