Atlanta police seek woman’s ‘friends’ who beat her for two hours then posted video online
Police in Atlanta are investigating the 2-hour beating of a woman last Saturday night after her attackers posted the video online where it went viral, KHOU reports.
According to Myriah Pointer, 23, the two women who beat her were two of her best friends who turned on her after she accidentally sat on one of their hamburgers.
“They held me down,” Pointer said. “Took turns; stomped my face in — did all kinds of things.”
As Pointer was being held down while the women took turns hitting and kicking her as she drifted in and out of consciousness, another person in the room recorded the incident before uploading it to WorldStarHipHop.com, where it quickly went viral.
In the video, others can be seen standing by watching, with one man holding a baby and watching from just a few feet away.
According to Pointer, who sustained fractures to her face, two black eyes, and two broken teeth, “I just thought they were going to kill me.”
Police say that charges will be filed, with Pointer’s sister saying a mutual friend is attempting to convince the suspects to turn themselves in.
Pointer said she can’t understand why her friends turned on her, saying, “I don’t think anyone deserves that. I can’t understand it for nothing. It cannot be about a burger.”
