A mother, with her children in the back seat, stops her car at a red light. She locks the doors as a large group of black teens surround her vehicle. Suddenly they start shaking, kicking her car, shattering the back window as the two young kids scream in fear. This terrorizing scene may seem like a plot from a horror movie. But it was too real for Chicago mom Susan Pedersen.
With her nerves shaken, Pedersen told reporters that she had just “dropped off a friend at the University of Chicago on Thursday night and was stopped at a red light near the campus with her two young children. That’s when a group of black teens attacked her.
“They were walking around both sides of the vehicle — in the front, in the back — and as they were walking across, they were hitting my car, using racial slurs and telling me that I didn’t belong in their neighborhood because I was white,” she told ABC News.
The attack that left her two children covered in broken glass. “I’m very scared, very anxious, nervous. Just fearful,” she said.
According to the report, police say two people were arrested and charged, but Susan Pedersen says several dozen people were involved in the attack.
“This is something that’s going to stay with me for the rest of my life,” she said. In the video below she describes the terrorizing attack.
