Michelle Audo, 48, said she was beaten multiple times and suffered a broken nose, two black eyes and a concussion during the horrific incident in Blue Springs, Missouri, USA
A mother was brutally injured after putting herself in danger to stop a gang of girls from beating up her daughter.
Michelle Audo, 48, confronted the group of 14-year-olds after they showed up at her home in Blue Springs, Missouri, on the night of May 14.
The gang reportedly wanted to fight Ms Audo’s 16-year-old daughter, but the protective mother intervened before she could reach her.
Ms Audo claimed that the girls arrived at the house “excited and ready to fight someone”.
She said she was beaten multiple times and suffered a broken nose, two black eyes and a concussion during the horrific incident.
The mother eventually escaped the gang when her eldest daughter and husband stepped in to help.
“I thought I’d just go outside and tell them to go and they would go,” she told the NY Post. “That didn’t happen.”
The police were called, but by the time they arrived the group had fled the scene. Later, one of the teens took to Snapchat to brag about the attack.
She reportedly wrote, “Imagine your mom getting her ass spanked” and “Tell your mom to come wipe her blood off my window.”
Police charged two of the teenage suspects with minor assault. Their names have not been released due to their age. They will face charges in juvenile court, according to Jennifer Brady of the Blue Springs, Missouri Police Department.
“We are waiting for the investigation to be completed before charges are filed,” Brady said.
“The girls were not arrested. One is currently considering assault charges. It is undecided whether the other teenager will be charged.”
According to a police report that the Kansas City StarMs Audo said a blonde woman “landed on top of her and continued to hit her in the face with a closed fist” while another girl “lay on top of Ms Audo trying to help the blonde woman”.
Blue Springs Police Chief Bob Muenz said a juvenile unit had been assigned to handle the case, but that it could be upgraded to a single-judge family court due to the seriousness of Ms Audo’s injuries, the Kansas City Star reported.
Ms Audo told the NY Post that the teenager’s violent actions were “significant” and hopes they will receive “consequences other than community service”.
“They think they’re mature enough to spank someone’s mother, I think they have to face the consequences,” Ms Audo told the Kansas City Star. “What’s going to stop her from coming back? Or to do that to someone else?”
