Can I ask why you're so concerned?

Maybe because the story

Maybe because the story sounds fishy? Two young men his a woman over the head with a tree branch, and then run away? Because....? When a story doesn't make sense, a sensible person will assume that other information is required to make sense of it.

Of course, I could be wrong. Please share with us your long list of 'young white guys with blonde hair conking women joggers with tree branchs' stories - I'd love to hear them.

Well, you were right and I was wrong

I've updated the post to point to the WFXT report.

But as for examples of pure white men attacking women, no, can't think of any with tree branches, but white men attacking women is hardly a rare occurrence. You've heard of Brock Turner, I assume.

Pure white men?

Are we talking aryan nation pure white or is blonde hair and blue eyes the standard definition of pure white?

Ok, as a woman and a jogger

I have to say, WTF?

If this is a result of a language barrier, as stated, perhaps the police department needs to hire some interpreters 'cause boy, they were so far off the mark.

I would think interpreting the words "a branch fell on my head to mean two white guys, one in cargo shorts, assaulted me with a tree branch" by someone who is not a native English speaker to be a problem. What happens when the next instance of not a native speaker tries to communicate what happened to him/her?

But she was attacked

By on

By a large tree branch.

I kind of get it. The branch came down. A few guys took it off of her. When she tried to explain it to the cops it sounded like the guys were on the first part of the story rather than the second part. Honest mistake.

Sad

First struck by a branch, then hit by a language barrier.

i remember seeing this story earlier

and thinking that above all else, it was really freakin weird to hear of two people attacking anybody at all with a tree branch and then running away

glad to see that she wasnt seriously hurt, glad nobody got shot because of the miscommunication.

apparently no good deed goes unpunished after all

Except

By on

Two pure white guys attacked each other on the Common with wooden stakes and one was dressed in cargo pants.

Except I'm guessing they weren't so pure. And they weren't on the Common. No idea if they were white, not positive the stakes were wooden, and I have no idea if one was wearing cargo pants. And they attacked each other, not a woman. But other than that, yeah, exactly the same!
