ATLANTA - An Atlanta woman says she was attacked and badly beaten after an argument over a hamburger.

Myriah Pointer, 23, said her so-called friends kicked and punched her while recording the attack.

“I’m more hurt emotionally than physically,” Pointer said. “I was unconscious while they were beating me.”

Pointer has two black eyes, a chipped tooth and a concussion after the women, who she thought were her friends, beat her and videotaped it.

“By someone you called your best friend,” Pointer told Channel 2’s Tom Jones. “It was about a burger.”

Pointer said she was hanging out with her friends at an apartment complex on Saturday when one of the women accused her of sitting on her Whopper Jr.

“Like, the wrapper of the burger,” Pointer said. “Like, I didn’t even sit on her burger.”

Pointer told Jones that that’s when the women started punching and kicking her and wouldn’t let her leave.

Pointer said they told her, “You’re not going nowhere.”

While the attack went on, Pointer told Jones the 3-year-old child of one of the attackers and an attacker’s boyfriend watched.

She is now trying to get police to arrest them.

“They need to serve time,” Pointer said.

She told Jones that with friends like these, she doesn’t need enemies.

“I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy,” she said.

Police say they are aware of the video and are investigating.
