WBAL and Inside City Charm reported:
A photographer for The Examiner (Baltimore) was attacked by a person believed to be a student while the photographer was taking pictures at a school where an art teacher was assaulted earlier this month, the newspaper said.
Arianne Starnes, 24, said she was thrown to the ground Thursday morning after an apparent student at Reginald F. Lewis High School left a group of about 20 other persons.
Starnes told the newspaper that others in the group had posed for pictures to be used by the newspaper in a special report when the attacker wearing a blue bandana emerged and accused her of taking his picture. Starnes said she told the boy she had not photographed him.
The attacker grabbed Starnes’ cameras, pulling at the straps and threatening her. After a struggle, Starnes was pushed backward to the ground, falling on her cameras.
Starnes stood up and was again confronted by the boy, who this time pointed his finger at her head and pretended to shoot her, saying “I told you not to take a f… picture.”
