A woman in a wheelchair tried to stop looters from stealing items inside a Target store in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where mass protests erupted on May 27 in response to the police killing of George Floyd (MORE VIDEO BELOW).
Some on Twitter claimed the woman was trying stab people with a knife, and goes by the name of “Jennifer.”
She was injured in the incident, and recalled what happened outside the store:
They attacked me … from the front and back. They punched me in my mouth, my head, I got punched in the head several times. I got grabbed from behind. … They stole my keys. They stole everything they could off of me. I got maced in the face. I got covered with fire extinguisher stuff. I’ve already seen the EMTs and they told me to go home.
Video captured earlier of the elderly wheelchair-bound woman who was attacked at the Minneapolis Target during the BLM riot. In a later interview, she said she was trying to do her part in stopping the looting. She was beat on the head & sprayed in the face w/a fire extinguisher. pic.twitter.com/EpcAAF0HLY— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) May 28, 2020
