“She noticed a vehicle pull up and heard a male’s voice and asking her if she was alright,” Jessie Lozano said, recalling his daughter’s account of the attack. “And she slightly looked up and (saw) several males, she said, ‘Yes’ and the next thing she remembers is coming to and not really being able to see well.”
