Michael Jackson’s niece, Yasmine Jackson, posted dramatic photos on Instagram after an attack in which she was allegedly stabbed 7 times by a woman using a racial slur.
Yasmine shared pictures of her wounds on Instagram in a post saying, “God. Please protect our Black queens. These are strange times right now and we need you more than ever.”
The attack occurred on 30 May in Las Vegas and she shared several pictures of her wounds on Instagram saying, “This woman chased me down and started stabbing me. She said it’s because I was a n***** and that’s all I could hear while I was being stabbed. I can’t move my neck at all. I’m scared to be alone. I asked people to help me because she was stabbing me and nobody helped.”
“Until someone did, actually a few people did & I am thankful for you. I pray to God that if you have any kind of hatred in your heart towards black people that you heal it. I didn’t deserve this, nobody does. Oh & btw I’m still f****** proud to be black.”
Las Vegas police told that 22-year-old Angela Bonell was charged with a hate crime and and attempted murder with a deadly weapon after being arrested in Las Vegas on May 30.
In the video footage of the arrest, Yasmine can be seen sitting on the ground looking shocked while her face and body is filled with wounds. Bonell can be seen handcuffed and taken to a car by the police.
Before calling the police for help, passers-by had caught Bonell and tied her arms to the gate of the apartment building.
Las Vegas police told in their arrest report, “Bonell stated she was just out for a walk and does not own a knife.” Witnesses told the police that Jackson was Bonell’s upstairs neighbour and that Bonell had also made noise complaints about her in the past. Neighbors told the police that they also heard screams and the alleged racist slanders.
