Corona Family Looks to the Public for Help in Identifying Girl’s Attackers
Life in Corona ^ | March 15th, 2014 | Mike Wilton

Posted on 03/15/2014 11:49:40 PM PDT by antceecee

The family of a 16-year-old Corona girl is looking to the public for help in identifying a group of girls that attacked her in while walking home from school Thursday afternoon.

Faith Edwards, a student at Lee V. Pollard High School, was walking through Santana Park between 1:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon when she was attacked from behind by a group of unknown girls.

During the assault, the girls held Faith’s arms and head and began violently beating her before realizing the girl they were attacking was not their intended target. According to the victim’s mom, Krista Edwards, one of the girls yelled out, “That’s not her, that’s not her!” before the beating subsided. Unfortunately, the damage had already been done.

As a result of the attack, Faith suffered a broken nose with multiple fractures, which will require corrective surgery. In addition to the fractures she suffered a concussion, scalp swelling, a gash on her face requiring stitches, a perforated ear drum and suffered significant swelling and bruising to her face and body.

Due to the nature of the attack, the victim has had a hard time identifying her attackers. She was left bloodied, beaten and unconscious at the scene of the attack and had limited visibility during the beating. At this point all that is known is that she was attacked by three or four girls and they appeared to be older than the victim. One is believed to have been a Hispanic female around 5’10″ and 250 lbs. but aside from that not much more is known.

This girl is family. She was attacked, mistakenly, but what does that mean.. are they still looking to attack the
other girl?
Despite finding out “who” was responsible, LE says they have to “investigate”. Not exactly hurrying over to arrest the scum-baggettes! We are all afraid this is going to be buried in LE BS and no prosecution. Please go to this site and post in support of Faith. God bless.

Does LE mean Law Enforcement? I hope many people learn about what happened to your relative. The school doesn’t seem to be taking responsibility for their students. Maybe the principal is one of those hard headed people who does not want to ‘lose’ any students to expulsion or alternate schools, which is what these gang bangers need, if we cannot deport them.
Has your local news or Board of Education been notified of the goings on at this school? It may take a parent to threaten and actually carry out a lawsuit for inadequate measures to ensure their child’s safety. That might wake them from their ignorant bliss.

How terrible for her and you. I hope she has a full recovery and that justice is done.

Do we have to guess the ethnicity of the attackers and the victim, or do we already know they were Amish or Mormon?

Police know who have been identified by several as the attackers, but told my relative they are “investigating”.

We are trying to be sure that LE will pursue prosecution of those who hurt Faith. That is all. Also.. school district and LE need to step it up in protecting kids at this school.

Yowser. That was a pretty hefty assailant to attack a young girl.
Prayers for healing and recovery.
In a sin cursed world bad stuff is going to happen. Keep your eyes on The Lord and trust in Him. There will be rough patches, but He will bring His people (those that believe on Him) through it all.

I feel so sorry for your family. Hope to heaven that the perps are caught. More and more girl gangs are forming. Not a good sign for our country and shows the further deterioration of too many family structures due to drugs, divorce, bad role models, lousy movie/tv/msm influences, ineffective law enforcement with hands tied by PC influence and gov’t interference at the top rungs, along with the Obama regime’s thuglike example and loosening of good moral precepts. Other than that, ... Hope your relative recovers quickly. She deserves all the best in life from the point of her healing on.

Can your family afford a private investigator?

After she recovers perhaps lessons in self defense.

Don’t give up contacting the police, weekly, every other day. Make them not forget this attack.

Piss-assed story. I’d really like to know what state Corona is in. Lazy writer and editors.

As for the mob attack, well, that’s the new “norm”.

Ought to make identifying one of the assailants pretty easy; could probably eliminate most of the football team.

Teenage girls are getting as bad as the guys.

In California, they’ve been that bad for 40+ years.

Corona’s the next town west from Riverside. I worked there for a few months back in ‘05/’06.

Beautiful girl. Hope she fully recovers. I hope they come down hard on the attackers. This is aggravated assault / attempted murder.

Prayers for your Grand Niece, antceecee. Sounds like she is going to have a rough road till she fully recovers physically. Mentally... I can only imagine she will have some issues because of the brutality. I hope LE finds the animals who did this to her and before they have the opportunity to do it again.

The root cause of what is going on is that evil is loose in the world. The other things you mention are symptoms of the disease. IMHO.

I taught for many years in an inner city high school. I'd usually take a chance and try to break up a fight between two boys. But I'd always wait for help if it were two girls fighting.

The girls ALWAYS fought fiercely, in an all-out attempt to do as much damage as possible. Blood on the floor type stuff. The guys not so much.

And I have a theory as to why that was so. The girls usually fought over a boy. The girls wanted to put a complete stop to any encroachment. The boys usually fought over some slight. The boys only needed to show that they were willing to push back. No need to cripple the enemy (and risk being crippled yourself).

I have a pretty nice about a year younger than this young lady. She has been subjected to jealousy driven verbal abuse. I offer my condolences and prayers. Keep the public awarness campaign going.

Wow...prayers for your grandniece. May I suggest that the parents look into homeschooling her when she recovers. Lots of great programs online and she can study in peace.

The writer is part time and writes online news for the community. I thanked him for jumping right on this and publishing the story. I have to disagree with you. Because of this writer there are people stepping forward as witnesses. Still we need to wait and see if police will arrest anyone.
