"My friend then said, 'Yes, I know, I'm a boy in a dress.' After that [one of the assailants] said, 'Yes I know, and you're... disgusting.' I said, 'Hey guys, we're not looking for any trouble, we're just trying to get home...' It's really sad, disgusting. It just makes no sense this day and age and in Omaha, for all of this stuff to still be happening [out] in the streets."
