A mother of three from Federal Way, Washington was violently attacked after trying to warn others of a man fondling himself in public.
Amanda Edwards, 35, told Q13 Fox that while walking to a Safeway on Monday night to pick up food for her kids, a man pulled up next to her in a parking lot. Edwards said he was fondling himself. She told him to get lost and he did, but he moved on to another victim: a woman and her young daughter.
Bravely, Edwards said she yelled at the mother to stay away. She also attempted to snap a picture of the man’s vehicle, according to a Facebook post authored by Edwards. However, he sped away too fast.
Then, while walking home from the store, Edwards said the same man followed her and pulled up next to her in a white four-door sedan. He got out and attacked her, rendering her unconscious.
"He was extremely aggressive and when he came up and he said, 'I got you,' and when he started laughing - it was one of the most evil laughs I've heard," she told Q13. "The next thing I know I was waking up on the ground (before) running home. I didn't realize I had been hit multiple times in my face."
Edwards suffered four facial fractures, which require surgical plates reconstructed in her cheeks.
The brave mother has described her attacker as a Pacific Islander man in his 20s or 30s with a slim build. She said his four-door white sedan has major damage to its passenger side.
