At least one of the suspects appears to be wearing a Muslim head rag and they all have beards. Surveillance video shows that on Oct. 2nd, Gwendolyn Reyes walked past three men in Brooklyn. After a vicious beating, the three suspects left her lying helpless on the ground.
CBS NEWS (h/t Devin S) On the security video, after being pushed to the wall of a nearby building by one man, Reyes is punched in the face twice. The other men are seen trying to steal her purse, dragging her 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 told the station. “And then that’s when I realized blood was coming from my face, but I didn’t know where from my face.”
They had gotten away with her purse and iPhone and Reyes was treated for a broken nose at a local hospital. Police told CBS New York that the attacks appeared random and the suspects targeted her because she was walking alone.
The aspiring model remains confident that the NYPD will catch her attackers. She is not afraid, and says nothing will prevent her from pursuing her career, according to CBS New York.
