    By: Lauren Pozen


    ATLANTA - A woman says she was attacked as she was entering her apartment in southeast Atlanta.

    After spending the day Thursday running errands, Nathalie Brandon-Robinson parked her car inside her apartment complex and started to unload. 

    "I had this big pot that had some stuff in it and the bags and my purse strapped up," she said.

    Brandon-Robinson said she noticed a group of teens lingering in the parking lot but didn't think anything of it. She said she made her way up to her apartment and heard one of the teens say "Hey madam."

    She said she turned around and the teen grabbed her.


    "I looked at him. He looked at me and he came for me and he grabbed me," she said. "I screamed as loud as I could. I didn't even know I could scream that loud."

    Brandon-Robinson said the teen kept putting his hand over her mouth and she fought him off.

    "I was kicking him backwards. I opened my mouth as wide as I could and I chomped down on it like a dog with a bone."

    Channel 2 Action News obtained surveillance video that shows four teens running away from the apartment complex.

    Brandon-Robinson said the experience left her rattled.

    "I am just grateful because my birthday was the next day. I didn't expect 54 to turn out like this," she said.

    Anyone with information on the case should call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477
