According to the New York Post, the victim Muhlaysia Booke and Edward Thomas had gotten into a traffic accident in Dallas. In the video you can see the woman being viciously punched by Thomas while several others in the crowd appear to be egging the attack on, with at least one person kicking the victim as she lay helpless in the middle of the road. Booker, who appeared to be unconscious, was rushed to a local hospital. She’s now recovering from facial fractures and an injury to her arm.

Cops have arrested Thomas for “his role in the attack.” Booker also spoke to cops and told police that Thomas and the people who assaulted her yelled homophobic slurs during the attack outside of the Royal Crest Apartment. Investigators are probing the attack as a possible hate crime, according the Dallas Morning News reports.

Thomas remains held on $75,000 bond on a charge of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, jail records show.
