Rowlett police investigating video of assault on woman, child

Video posted online of an assault that took place at Herfurth Elementary School in Rowlett on June 19, 2015.

ROWLETT – Rowlett police have confirmed a video that has been floating around the internet this week of a woman being assaulted as she holds a child in her lap occurred at a Garland ISD elementary school last Friday.

Police have been investigating the video since they were made aware of it, and are searching for the suspect that led the assault.

The video appears to show two young women attempting to get another to fight them as the victim sits on a bench with a small child in her lap. Eventually, one of the women grabs the victim by her hair and rips her off of the bench, sending both the victim and the child spilling to the concrete below.

The assault suspect then continues to pull the victim onto the grass where she hits her repeatedly as the child screams out.

A Rowlett police spokesperson confirmed Thursday night the video was shot on June 19 outside of Herfurth Elementary School, but said the investigation was ongoing.

If you have any information that could help police in their investigation, please call 972-412-6200.
