A Black mother in Connecticut is furious after she and her baby were attacked by a gang of White racists who smashed in her car windows and called her the N word.
Thaniyyah Hutchinson, 37, told Fox 61 that she was driving home Sunday night when she saw a group of White people attacking a Black man on the street.
“They kept hitting him and he kept falling, but he kept getting up,” Hutchinson said. As she called 911, the Black man was able to escape. This is when the group began approaching Hutchinson, jumping on the hood of her car.
“They called me ni**er, they called me B-I-T-C-H, told me to get the eff out of here, they called my son names, they called him half racial, they called him a mutt,” Hutchinson shared.
Officers who arrived on the scene witnessed part of the attack. Police say an unidentified 15-year-old smashed Hutchinson’s back passenger side window, causing glass to shatter all over her toddler. Fortunately, he was not injured.
“You all destroyed me. I feel hurt, I’m scared, I don’t know who to trust, this is at my own corner store where I look over my shoulder and I can’t take my baby to the corner store.”
The four adults will be arraigned in court on July 12.
