A woman called the police on three black women claiming she was attacked by “an African black person” - but the joggers say they were the ones racially abused.
The runners in California, identified only as Brittany, Jessyka and Raquel, were getting in some exercise on Sunday at Dockweiler State Beach.
An unidentified woman then starting hurling racial slurs at them, they claimed.
She reportedly called them “the virus” - and said they didn’t belong in southern California, according to one of the trio.
One of the three black women soon started recording.
The walker phoned cops - but her message soon found its way on social media.
“My emergency is that I was just attacked by an African black person,” the woman yelled on the footage? shared with KABC.
“She just attacked me from behind.”
She added: “My environment has been harmed by this African black person."
Raquel told NBC Los Angeles : “She continued on that she was from Mexico and this was her continent and we needed to back to our continent. "
The women filed a hate incident report with Los Angeles police, an LAPD spokeswoman told The New York Post.
“It’s still under investigation,” LAPD spokesman Officer Lizeth Lomeli confirmed.
The joggers said the ugly encounter reminded them of Amy Walker's claim this summer.
The white woman called police in late May, claiming a black man who was birdwatching was threatening her.
“It was very similar to what we saw in Central Park — knowing that she could arm herself with our blackness and make us a threat,” Raquel told the station.
