Who is Ahliah Vestal ?
Two teenagers in Texas were arrested for allegedly ambushing a classmate and filming him on Snapchat, and the young victim’s mother is now speaking out, saying her daughter is “very traumatized” by the attack.
Police in Clifton, Tx., charged Ahliah Vestal and Savannah Walker, both 17, in the alleged attack on Maya Tremillo, also 17. Both girls were charged as adults with aggravated assault in the fight that was apparently over child.
The victim was allegedly lured to a park on April 18 by Vestal, who claimed she needed to retrieve a pair of borrowed shoes, according to police and Tremillo’s mother, Julie Kross.
When Tremillo arrived, she was immediately attacked, her mother said.
“[Walker] jumped out of the car and the other girl who was filming her also jumped out of the car with her phone, and then [Walker] started yelling at Maya,” Kross told The Sun.
As Tremillo turned to go back to her car, Walker allegedly “hit her in the back of the head and just jumped on her and started hitting her,” Kross said in the article published Saturday.
Kross said her daughter was left with a concussion, cuts to her face and body and a sprained ankle. Footage showed the bloodied teen wearing a neck brace.
Clifton Police Chief Chris Blanton told local media that the attack had “something to do with a child” and that the meeting was orchestrated “for the sole purpose of fighting.”
A 16-year-old girl whose name has not been released will also be charged, but there was not enough room in the local juvenile jail for her to be held, Blanton said.
According to the victim’s mother, she was instantly attacked the moment she arrived.
Blanton also told reporters that Walker allegedly carried out most of the attacks, although all three will face charges.
“Being there and filming him, antagonizing him and cheering him on is not okay,” the city’s top police officer said. “These other two didn’t throw a punch, but they helped plan it and they helped set it up, they filmed it and they animated it, so they’re being charged the same.”
Kross contacted police before the April 18 attack and even filed a police report after Walker allegedly threatened her daughter, but police took no action, she said.
“They were threatening to beat her up and said, ‘You better watch your back, we’re going to kick your ass,’” Kross said. “It scared her and it scared me. So we filed a police report.”
While allegedly attacking her daughter, Walker said “file a report on that now” and then posted it on Snapchat, Kross told the outlet.
In Snapchat screenshots shown to The Sun, Walker reportedly wrote: “Speak your f—–g s–t now b-h!!!” and “Keep my cousin’s name and my name out of your fucking mouth b-h don’t play games with me.”
Ahliah Vestal had allegedly asked Tremillo to meet her at a local park to retrieve her shoes.
Kross said Tremillo is “obviously very traumatized, very depressed.
“I’m really worried about her emotionally,” he added, saying her daughter will finish her senior year of high school from home while she recovers.
Tremillo is “constantly looking over his shoulder and jumping when he passes a car. Physically, she will heal, but I know the emotional things will take longer,” her mother said.
