A Dallas socialite assaulted a Black couple photographing their baby in a public park.
A Black couple who were photographing their baby in a public park in Houston Texas was assaulted by a White woman.
The video of the incident has gone viral on social media, with nearly 3 million views.
"(I) asked her to restrain her dog as it made a beeline for the baby and it was coming dangerously close to my child. The lady begins shouting at us that we are on private property, and that she will not restrain her dog because she can do whatever she wants there.”
Kelyn Alyssa and her husband Isaiah Allen decided to take their baby daughter to a park for her 1-year photo shoot.
Little did they know the family outing would turn into a nightmare when they were harangued and assaulted by a woman who told them they were trespassing on private property.
The woman was identified as Franci Neely, an attorney, and a well-known Dallas socialite.
The woman stepped out of her car barefoot, and carrying her dog and approached the family. She told the family that the spot is private property and that they had no right to be there. When Isaiah told her she was crazy, the woman slapped him.
The woman set her dog down, and the animal started to approach the baby. Alyssa asked the woman to restrain the dog, which she refused, claiming that on private property she can act as she pleases. Alyssa told her:
“Shame on you. You brought your dog out here to bite my child.”
Whereupon, the woman once again slapped Isaiah.
The woman was identified as Franci Neely, an attorney, and a well-known Dallas socialite. Neely is the ex-wife of the Jim Crane, the owner of the Houston Astros baseball team.
Neely and her ex-husband are supporters of the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, and she is reportedly worth millions after her divorce settlement from Crane.
Neely apologized publicly, saying:
"A week ago, I let my emotions overtake my better self and I apologize from the bottom of my heart."
Kelyn Alyssa and her husband Isaiah Allen have filed a report with the Police, and Franci Neely may face charges for assault.
In a similar incident, a white woman was caught on video brandishing a knife at a Black family in a parking lot.
39-year-old Amber Rocco from Willamina, Oregon, can be seen holding a knife in one hand screaming racial slurs at the family:
“It’s called self-defense you stupid n***** bitch!”
Rocco has been arrested and charged with felony and harassment charges, along with “intimidation” charges under Oregon’s hate-crime statute.
