“While DJ was getting jumped in the middle of the street, that’s when I was getting up off the ground, and I saw the cops just drive by.”
A young couple was attacked over the weekend in Chicago amid the violent “Teen Takeover” of the Windy City, saying they feared the mob was “going to kill us” and that cops just drove by the attack without stopping.
Speaking with America Reports, Ashley Knutson, 20, and Devontae Garrisson-Johnson (DJ), 22, recalled being randomly attacked by the mob as they were out shopping in the Windy City.
“DJ had my hand and he was trying to lead me through the crowd of people and they pushed him, they pushed me. And as soon as they pushed me I told DJ, hey, you know, they just shoved me. And he asked them, he was like, ‘yo, don’t shove her. Who shoved her?” Knuston recalled.
“And as soon as he said that, everything went crazy, you know, they said they’re gonna kill us.”
Knuston said that she was pushed to the ground and a large group went after Garrisson-Johnson.
“I have a lot less injuries than he does, because I was more of a bystander than anything, but everyone went for him and ended up in the middle of the street. They were jumping him in the middle of the street. It got pretty bad,” she said.
Garrisson-Johnson said he suffered injuries to his face, shoulder, and back, and called the attack “very random.”
