Girl in Gary attacked waiting for school bus

August 22, 2013 (GARY, Ind.)

This happened Wednesday near 24th Avenue and Gerry Street.

Kayla reed and several other children were at the bus stop when they were approached by four people who demanded their money and cell phones.

Reed says she told the group she didn't have either.

A woman then grabbed her by the hair and started punching her.

Surveillance video shows the attackers driving away and Kayla going for help.

"We will find them and hopefully they'll get locked up and put in jail for assaulting me," Kayla said. "They don't get to assault another kid or rob anybody else."

Despite the attack, Reed cleaned herself up and went on to school.
