A former Texas Senate candidate claims she was « gagged, handcuffed [and] tortured » in a hotel – and three people were arrested in connection with the attack.
Vanessa Tijerina, a Republican who lost in the November election, said she received a call to discuss « something very important about her safety » at a Texas Inn in Raymondville, news channel KVEO reported.
« They made it seem like they had something really, really important to tell me, and they couldn’t tell me over the phone, » said Tijerina, 42, in a tearful Facebook Live video.
Instead, she was beaten to a pulp by the group on Christmas Eve, leaving her face badly injured, eyes puffy and teeth damaged.
« I was hit. I was terrorized, handcuffed, gagged and tortured, ”Tijerina said on Monday in another Facebook Live video.
Amanda Salinas, Ariel Vera and Raymond Santana were arrested in connection with the attack, police said.
Tijerina seemed to suggest that she knew who was behind the attack and said, “Somebody wanted this to be done in my face. ”
