BOCA RATON, FL — A great grandmother says she was beaten and left for dead at a Boca Raton park because of her race.
65-year-old Ruby Williams says she went to Red Reef Park on North Ocean Boulevard Thursday evening to go fishing with friends.
She says she walked to the restroom alone, and was hit from behind by someone who called her a racial slur.
Williams claims her face hit the concrete as two young men continued calling her the “N” word, telling her that her race was not welcomed here.
She says the men then rolled her onto her stomach, and one of them punched her in the face. She claims she was then dragged by her feet, and abandoned in a dark area of the park. She passed out, she says, and called for help when she finally woke up.
