DETROIT -- A 50-year-old woman said she was attacked Thursday morning after getting off the bus in Detroit.  Her money, shoes and jacket were all allegedly stolen.

"I would never have thought that would happened to me, never, never in my wildest dreams thought that would happen to me," said Lisa Sanford.

Sanford said she was minding her own business when she was jumped in broad daylight by at least a dozen attackers.

"They kicked me in my face so hard I couldn't see.  I couldn't get up.  I didn't know which way I was going they kicked me so hard in my face," she explained.

Sanford said it happened around 8:00 a.m. Thursday near West Chicago and Faust.  The attackers started hitting, kicking and even pulling out her hair.

Police have three suspects in custody, but the damage is already done.

"It's very sad.  The kids are out of control, disrespectful.  It's a shame when you can't ride on a bus or get off the bus without getting harassed.  These kids are so just out of control," said Sheila Williams, a friend of Sanford.

"Nothing's going to get better.  It's going to get worse around here," said Sanford.  "I don't even want to come outside.  I don't want to come outside (anymore)."
