Kentucky Attack Victim Suffers Concussion, Police Hope To Identify Suspects Today


Though the victim of the attack, Lauren Valle, was interviewed by police on the scene for about 20 minutes, none of the suspects were questioned. Roberts explained the crowd was chaotic, and the perpetrators had disappeared into it by the time police arrived.

"We weren't able to make contact with them," she said. "There was a large crowd of more than 100 people gathered.... By the time the officers were able to get to the scene the incident was over."

MoveOn's political director Ilyse Hogue tells us that Valle suffered a concussion and sprains to her shoulder and arm as a result of the stomping. We'll continue to keep you updated as information unfolds.
