According to the victim’s son Pete, Becky, who is identified as the victim, tried to get off the 81 bus at La Loma Road and Figueroa Street early Friday afternoon. She was going to Vons supermarket to shop for her granddaughter. The attack was spurred on by a racial slur that came from Beasley.
She then dragged the victim to the front of the bus while no passengers, not even the driver intertwined. The assault ended after a passenger made a 911 call. Among the injures, Becky suffered from a broken nose, swollen eyes, multiple bruises and patches of ripped-out hair.
She was held at the hospital for 24 hours before being discharged.
Her son maintains that she still has difficulty walking post the horrific attack. He also mentioned that his family is often mistaken to be Asians, despite being Mexican American. As reported by the Daily Mail, there has been a steady increase in the amount of anti-Asian hate crimes after the Covid-19 lockdown.
