A woman who is six months pregnant was beaten about the head over the weekend, and Seminole County deputies said 12 people, ages 12 to 42, are responsible.
A Sheriff’s Office news release detailed the attack, which happened outside a Sanford home on Daffodil Terrace, and the arrests of several teenagers said to be involved.
Ashley Flournoy suffered several injuries to her head in a fight with neighbors. The fight stemmed from an argument, officials said.
Deputies said one of the alleged assailants yelled the group "did not care that she was pregnant."
Officials said Flournoy's injuries are not life-threatening and that they likely did not affect the child she is carrying.
Flournoy’s fiancé, Paul Brinkley, tried to intervene but was also struck during the attack, according to deputies. Flournoy’s mother and sister, Susan and Terika Young, were also attacked.
Deputies said a 12-, 14-, 15- and 16-year-old were arrested in the altercation. WESH 2 News will not identify the minors involved in this case.
The four minors will have to stay in juvenile hall for the next 21 days.
Several adults, identified as Antoinette Ford, Harry Roberts, Lasheena Thomas, Quentin Herring, Javaress Barnes, Willie Jones, Arshala Ford and Jarvis Young, were also arrested.
Roberts said Flournoy was the aggressor.
