A few weeks after a white woman reportedly assaulted a Black child attempting to block him from using the community pool has been charged. The incident took place on July 6th, when Heather J. Brown was recorded an unidentified woman was filmed by a witness. The video was later posted on Brown’s TikTok.
“He was here yesterday, ma’am, you know who I am,” Brown can be heard saying in the footage.
Brown claims her son was attacked at the community pool by the unidentified white woman. The alleged aggressor can be heard asking the mother a question before the gate open. Then appears to grab the young boy as he attempts to walk past her.
“Don’t you put your hands on my son! Don’t you ever, ever put your hands on my son!” Brown yells in response before threatening to call the police and report the woman for putting her hands on her child.
“Get out of my face, lady! And she’s going to jail because she just put her hands on my son,” the mother can be heard yelling.
Once the video started circulating on social media, Brown later posted an update saying when the woman attempted to tell police about the attack she warned Brown that the responding officer would probably believe she was the actual victim “based on just the way we look.”
Brown said the woman in question had let in two white children before telling her Black child to wait outside. This caused her to believed her actions were racially motivated.
Details of the case are still unclear because Brown opted not to give the name of the woman, or what happened directly after the altercation at the gate to the pool according to theGrio. The mother did, however, make a final update stating the woman requested a public defender for a court appearance scheduled for August 20.
