Two Black teenage girls were arrested in New York City and charged with hate crimes. A third suspect is still at-large and is being sought by police.
The three girls allegedly carried out a brutal attack on a 57-year-old White woman named Jill LeCroix who was riding a bus in Queens.
The attackers hurled racist, anti-white remarks at LeCroix, who was the only white person on the bus. LeCroix has three bi-racial children and is a grandmother of five.
“Before they hit me, the girl with the green hair said, ‘You probably like Trump! Don’t you?’ LeCroix said. “I said, ‘I love him.’ I didn’t see which one hit me first.”
“The one with the green hair, she was saying she hates White people, the way they talk, hates White skin, the way their skin cracks. Saying she was gangsta,” the woman added.
“I was the only White person on the bus. By the time we started passing St. John’s Cemetery on Woodhaven, she started in on me, saying, ‘That’s where I’m going to bury you!’”
“She had a bag from Bath and Body Works, and she took out a scrub and said she was going to beat me with it. It was tangerine,” LeCroix explained. “She said, ‘You’re going to get what you deserve! All White people are going to get what they deserve.’ It was crazy.”
