Yasmine Beasley Wiki – Yasmine Beasley Bio
Yasmine Beasley was taken into custody for allegedly assaulting an older woman on a Metro bus in Eagle Rock. The 70-year-old woman was beaten last week, and the suspect reportedly used anti-Asian slurs before the attack.
Beasley is 23 years old.
An elderly Mexican-American woman was attacked last Friday while she was on her way to grocery shopping in Los Angeles’ Eagle Rock neighborhood. The attack was proved on account of her being mistaken for an Asian.
A police spokesman told the Los Angeles Times that the 23-year-old was arrested on suspicion of felony battery charges in the attack. The victim has sustained multiple injuries to her face and even suffered from a concussion due to the severity.
According to Pete, Becky tried to get off the 81 bus at La Loma Road and Figueroa Street early Friday afternoon. She was going to Vons supermarket to shop for her granddaughter. The attack was spurred on by a racial slur that came from Beasley.
She then dragged the victim to the bus’s front while no passengers, not even the driver, intertwined. The assault ended after a passenger made a 911 call. Becky suffered from a broken nose, swollen eyes, multiple bruises, and patches of ripped-out hair among the injures.
She was held at the hospital for 24 hours before being discharged. Her son maintains that she still has difficulty walking post the horrific attack. He also mentioned that his family is often mistaken to be Asians, despite being Mexican American.
As reported by the Daily Mail, there has been a steady increase in the amount of anti-Asian hate crimes after the Covid-19 lockdown.
The attack was caught on a security camera of a nearby building. However, no one intertwined during the time of the same. Earlier that month, six Asian women out of eight people were murdered during three shootings in Atlanta by gunman Robert Aaron Long, 21.
In April, a 7-Eleven employee, an Asian man, was attacked by Gregory Jacques, 33. Jacques was charged with attempted assault, reckless endangerment, and assault. He punched the worker and yelled, “You Chinese motherf***er” at him and ran off.
