Beauty YouTuber Eden Estrada (known online as Eden The Doll) and her two friends, Jaslene Rose and Joslyn Flawless, were attacked in the streets of Hollywood while waiting for an Uber to take them home after a night out. The first assailant took Eden’s phone, and when she approached them, he and his friends began to throw rocks at her and her friends. The assailants proceed to record the rest of the assault, which they later posted to social media. Clips show the men hitting the women with bottles, throwing scooters at them, and threatening to kill them because of their gender identity. Jaslene was knocked unconscious after a blow to the head and the assailants continued to beat her.
Eden reports feeling relieved when she heard sirens nearby, but the cops “stopped, looked, and kept driving.”
“He held a crowbar to my face and threatened to kill me unless I stripped my shoes off and gave him my jewelry and all my processions. He said if I was trans he would kill me. He then forced me to hold his hand while he looks for my friends to kill them for being trans. Meanwhile men and WOMEN screaming that I’m a man and telling him to beat me. Please help us find them,” said Joslyn on her social media.
LAPD are currently investigating the assailants and asking for any information about them. If you know any of the following men, please contact the LAPD (1-877-275-5273) and share your information with them. We believe the man in the second row, middle column is named CARLTON CALLAWAY, but we still need more information on the other attackers. Here are screenshots of the assailants taken from the videos:
