A 32-year-old woman reportedly admitted to assaulting two women on the same day because they were white and walking around in her “black neighborhood.”
Ebony Steward, who is from St. Paul, Minnesota, faces two felony charges after police were called in to deal with two separate violence incidences involving the woman, reports KMSP-TV.
On Nov. 14 at around 2 p.m., a woman reportedly called cops and complained that she had been punched in the left eye by a woman she didn’t know as she exited a nail salon. The victim says she didn’t know why the suspect, identified as Steward, hit her so hard that she was left with swelling and bruising.
On the way to the Ramsey County Law Enforcement Center, she told authorities she assaulted the woman because she’s a “white girl in the hood.”
“Get that white bitch out of my yard, out of the hood,” Steward said, according to the complaint, which adds that she repeatedly said she hates white people.
In a post-Miranda interview, Steward admitted to both assaults and acknowledged she has anger management issues, the complaint says.
Steward “said that she was trying to help the white girl because she would probably come across someone who knew how to punch better or someone who might kill her,” the complaint says. “She added that ‘they’ should get her some anger management pills but they don’t.”
The complaint notes that Steward has already been convicted of assault twice this year, and has four previous assault convictions from 2005 through 2007.
