A mother from Missouri told the Kansas City Star A group of teenage girls arrived at their family’s home in Blue Springs on a Saturday night earlier this month to fight their daughter.
But Michelle Audo, 48, told the newspaper that two of the teenage girls beat her instead – leaving her with a concussion, a broken nose and black eyes.
She told the star an officer told her the teens were only 13 and 14 years old.
Now she’s worried they won’t face appropriate consequences due to their youth status.
what are the details
Audo told the star that she and her husband were asleep around 10:30 p.m. on May 14 when their daughters woke them up. Audo said her 16-year-old daughter said a “truckload of girls” were outside the house wanting to fight her 14-year-old sister, the newspaper said.
With that, Audo went downstairs and told the three or four teenage girls in the car to leave – but she noted to the star that they weren’t moving.
In fact, she told the newspaper that they only became more aggressive in their demands to fight their younger daughter.
“You guys just have to go,” Audo recalled telling the teens as she approached the car, according to the Star. “I’m like, ‘You know, she’s not coming out.’ And they say, ‘Well, either she comes out or we come in.’ And I’m like, ‘No, you’re not.’ … And then two of them jumped out of the car.”
Audo told police one of the girls – described as blonde – punched her in the face, the newspaper said.
“MS. Audo said the blonde woman landed on top of her and continued to punch her in the face with a closed fist,” the police report said, according to the Star helping blonde wife,” the newspaper said, citing a report by Audo’s older daughter to police.
Soon Audo’s husband and older daughter came outside and tried to help, the star said, adding that the daughter told police she “pulled the black-haired woman from ‘her mother’ and then pulled the blonde woman,” so the report.
“MS. Audo stated that as the blonde woman stood up, she assumed a fighting stance and moved towards her,” the report continues.
With that, Audo’s husband used a stick to bring the teenager down, Audo told the star. Apparently the youngsters had had enough; The two teenage girls got back into the car and the entire crew drove off, the newspaper said.
What happened afterwards?
The star said one of the suspects allegedly posted a Snapchat story about the incident – which Audo’s younger daughter kept in screenshots – which included two messages: “Imagine your mum getting her ass spanked” and “Tell your mum she shall come and wipe their blood from my window.”
A few hours later, police spoke to the two teenagers named in their report, the newspaper said, adding that one of them said Audo “came to the side of the car and swung at one of the teenagers in the vehicle ‘ whereupon the teen hit Audo back.
The suspect, who was thrown to the ground, told police: “She felt offended,” the star said, citing the police report, adding that when asked why she hadn’t called the police, the suspect replied: “She thought she would do it in trouble.”
What happened to Audo?
Audo told the newspaper she didn’t remember the attack and waited six days before seeing a doctor, after which she was diagnosed with a concussion and a broken nose. She added to the star that she was unemployed for a week and had a headache every day for two weeks – except for Sunday, which she said was the first day since the attack that she hadn’t had a headache.
What about the suspects?
The newspaper said the two teenage suspects were charged with simple assault and would be prosecuted in a “juvenile court”. Citing the police report, the star added that officers from the Community Youth Outreach Division will be handling the case.
But Audo told the newspaper the suspects face more serious consequences due to their injuries.
“They think they’re mature enough to spank someone’s mother. I think they have to face the consequences,” Audo noted to the star. “What’s going to stop her from coming back? Or to do that to someone else?”
Audo added to the newspaper that she had not heard from the girls’ parents; No apologies were issued.
“I was badly hurt,” she told the star. “These girls don’t seem to respect anyone. And to me it seems like they think they can do whatever they want. And they get away with it.”
