DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – It was a brutal attack caught on camera that shocked Dallas leaders, and now, the father of the victim has strong words for the people seen participating in the assault.
Peirre Booker is calling the attackers “cowards” as his daughter, Muhlaysia, continues to heal — physically and emotionally.
“My daughter is traumatized from it. Very traumatized,” said Booker.
Cell phone video captured the attack on Friday as a mob of bystanders watched men assaulting the transgender woman at the Royal Crest apartment complex on Wilhurt Avenue in south Dallas. According to police, the suspects allegedly used homophobic slurs during the assault.
“I felt like I wanted to personally cry, but the tears just wouldn’t come out. I felt more anger to the point where I wanted to go over there and do something, knowing my character, I didn’t,” said Booker.
