Teenage lesbian stripped and beaten by gang who called her ‘dyke’ and ‘stud’

A 15-year-old lesbian has been brutally attacked by a group who beat her and tore her clothes off while hurling anti-gay slurs.

Amari Graves was walking to the store in Austin, Chicago on Tuesday when she was jumped by a gang including a girl from her school and several adults, who used mace and a baseball bat to terrorise her.

Attacks on queer youth are still all too common, with teenagers in Arizona, California and London targeted by groups of attackers over the past year.

Through her tears, Amari said told NBC 5: “They all got out and walked up to me.

Speaking about one of her assailants, she said: “When I was walking she tried to pull a bat out and swing it at me.

“They were calling me ‘a dyke’ and ‘a stud’ and stuff.”

The adults and student then proceeded to stomp and kick Amari, she said, spraying her with mace while also attempting to strip her of her clothes.

The teenager said that the mother of one of the attackers filmed the vicious attack.

Amari’s mother, Catina Parks-Dorsey, said that the group should be arrested and charged with a hate crime and sexual assault.

“Absolutely nothing was done,” she said.
