She said the co-defendant parked the car, walked inside, and then came back outside with the Pinkerton, who then started threatening her and then pulled her out the car and started assaulting her. The victim said the Pinkerton then threw her to the ground and started kicking her and spitting on her. Pinkerton then dragged her up the street and didn’t stop hitting and kicking her until a neighbor stepped in.
