A teenage California couple was savagely attacked late last week by a group of skateboarders who had reportedly warned the teen girl not to come to the area of town after an alleged fight a month ago.


According to KTLA, Brooklyn Smith, 16, and her boyfriend, Toyon Carlson, were walking near Venice Beach Skate Park Thursday night when a young man spotted them. A bystander recorded the incident and voices can be heard yelling, "F—k that bitch!" and "Go back home!"

"Before we could even say anything, they was like, 'That's her! That's her!'" Brooklyn told the TV station. "They just came out of nowhere on skateboards."

A group of young men allegedly attacked both Brooklyn and her boyfriend, and at one point one of the men appears to hit Brooklyn in the back of the head with a skateboard and several attackers appear to kick the teen once she hits the ground.

On the video, an onlooker can be heard saying, "They just cracked her head open."

Brooklyn told the news station that before she began to black out, she started screaming, and that she believes a woman, who covered the 16-year-old with her body, may have saved her life.

"If it wasn't for her, Lord knows what they would be doing to me," Brooklyn told KTLA. "They were hurting her too … because she was screaming."


Brooklyn suffered a 4-inch gash to the head that required staples, the news station reports. Her boyfriend needed "nine stitches to the back of his head, and upper and lower lip. He also lost a tooth," according to the news station.

Police were looking for suspects, but as of last week, no arrest had been made.
