From Fox News Chicago
Video of Ashley, 20, and DJ, 22, being assaulted in the 100-block of North Wabash Ave. went viral. The two women claim they had just left Nordstrom at around 8 pm on Saturday night when they were assaulted.
“We were downtown Chicago, trying to buy food and shop. We were walking along the street when we saw a large group of men, women, and children. Ashley remembered that DJ was holding my hand to guide me through a crowd of people. They pushed him and they pushed her.
They said they would kill us. They turned and began fighting. I was pushed to the ground, and everyone went to DJ instead of me. I’m much less injured than him because I was a more passive bystander. Everyone went after him, and he ended up in middle of the road. He was being jumped in the middle street. Ashley said, “It got pretty bad.”
Chicago police claim that the thieves stole the property of the victims and then continued on their way.
Lenora Denis, a Chicago resident and Good Samaritan, who was nearby, tried to protect Ashley from the attackers, after she claimed that police had not come to help them.
