Long Beach couple Jamie Jarvis and Meg Taylor were attacked Saturday evening near Broadway and Esperanza Ave. while riding their bicycles.

According to Marlene Arrona of the Long Beach Police Department, officers determined the altercation occurred following the suspect honking at the victims and then one of the victims giving the suspect a “hand gesture” in response.

Jarvis took to Facebook on the matter, posting a graphic photo and claiming that she and Taylor were attacked by three African-American females that were inside two separate vehicles, a silver Mercedes SUV and a silver four-door Ford Focus.

“Meg and I were jumped coming home from a birthday party,” Jarvis wrote. “We just got out of the ER. This should have never happened and I thought my girl was dead. I’m not ok with this. Please help by keeping your eyes out. The girl in the SUV had two toddlers with her. Is this how we want our youth raised? Please spread the word.”

Arrona noted that only a single victim was transported to the hospital, where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries.The suspects have not been located and it is not clear whether this is being investigated as a hate crime or not.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
