Police have arrested a Las Vegas Hispanic woman for allegedly stabbing Michael Jackson’s niece in the neck seven times and yelling racial slurs at her.
Page Six reports that 22-year-old Angela Bonell allegedly cut Yasmine Jackson on May 30 near her home. The woman says she acted out the hate crime because Yasmine “was a n—-r.” Video of the incident shows a police officer arresting Bonell and wrestling her to the ground just before helping Yasmine, who was bleeding out. “This young girl just stabbed this girl in the face,” a bystander nearby said in their recording of the attack. “She said the only reason she did it was “because she was a n—-r.”
Yasmine ended up taking to social media and sharing the details of the attack. Yasmine is the daughter of Joh’Vonie Jackson, Jackson’s half-sister. “This woman chased me down and started stabbing me. She said it’s because I was a n—-r, and that’s all I could hear while I was being stabbed. I can’t move my neck at all. I’m scared to be alone.”
Police arrested Bonell on suspicion of attempted murder with a deadly weapon with hate crime enhancement. She is currently being held on a $100,000 bail. The domestic terrorist is set to appear in court Tuesday, according to KSNV reports. “I pray to God that if you have any kind of hatred in your heart towards black people that you heal it. I didn’t deserve this, nobody does,” Yasmine wrote on Instagram.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to Daily Mail and Yasmine’s account, the woman threw a brook at Yasmine before chasing her with a knife and attacking her. The outlet reports that witnesses told police that Bonell complained about noise coming from Yasmine’s apartment. Yasmine lives above Bonell.
