“She was just walking and felt something on her head,” the victim’s sister, Alba Jaurez, told CBS 2’s John Slattery. “Didn’t know what happened. Didn’t recognize him.”
Lachuga was taken to Southside Hospital, where she was treated for a concussion and broken ribs. She has been unable to return to her work as a landscaper.
