VACAVILLE, Calif. -- Four girls and a boy lured a lesbian teenager into a remote area and cut off her ponytail in an apparent anti-gay hate crime, authorities say.
The crime happened so fast that the victim had no time to react, she told authorities. The attack left the lesbian teen with a bald spot on the back of her head. After making sure her daughter was safe, the girl's mother got an emergency hair appointment, and the hair stylist said it took her two hours to repair the damage. "It was really traumatic for her," the hair stylist told news10.net.
The lesbian teen attends Will C. Wood High School in Vacaville, which is along Interstate 80 southwest of Sacramento.
The school filed a police report, and the victim's mother wants police to investigate the incident as a hate crime.
