A British teen and her friend were attacked by a group of men after she rejected their advances.
According to the New York Post, Gabrielle Walsh,18, was walking home from a club with her friend, Kyle McKeown, in Manchester when they were approached by three men. She said the men started harassing her and called McKeown “specky four eyes. One of the men who tried to hit on Walsh punched her in the face and she fell to the ground.
“They kept walking behind trying to talk to me. Eventually, I turned around and said, ‘I’m sorry, I’m not interested,’
“Then he hit me — he fully knocked me out,”
Walsh took a taxi to a local hospital after she woke up from the assault since she was told there would be a two-hour wait.
“When I woke up I was on the floor and the three of them had jumped on Kyle as well. His glasses were gone — he’s got cuts and bruises.”
The young woman stated she was only given eye drops and told to go home. Later on, she found out there was a blood clot in her eye. Walsh added she is too afraid to leave her house due to the brutal attack.
