A teenage girl was attacked by a group of boys in what is being treated by the police as a possible hate crime. The girl, whose identity is being withheld at her family’s request, was punched and kicked while getting homophobic slurs shouted at her. The victim suffered several injuries include a cuts on her face and a black eye that has swollen shut.

The crime took place in New Brighton, a neighborhood in Calgary.

“(I’m) pretty shaken up, it’s hard not to be scared,” the victim tells CTV News. “This is my neighborhood and I’ve always felt safe in it and now I don’t.”

Sadly this is the not the first time she’s been the target of abuse.

“I’ve had people throw things at me and play ‘pick on the lesbian on the bus’, and put gum in my hair but nobody has physically assaulted me until now,” she says.

Local authorities and the CPS Hate Crimes Unit are investigating the attack.
