Davidson said she ran to her bedroom where she was followed by one of the suspects who was demanding money. According to Davidson, when she could not get the money, the suspect struck her in the head with the handgun.
A police report states that one of the suspect's saw Davidson's mother trying to hide her daughter's wallet in her pants. The mother said she was pushed down by the suspect who took the wallet.
