The girl that was brutally beaten during a videotaped showdown by a teen named Sharkeisha is speaking out. KHOU Houston has identified the victim in the video as Shamichael Manuel, a 17-year-old student at Cypress Creek High School, who was attacked by Sharkeisha over a boy.
Shamichael told KHOU that she thought she was headed to a friend’s place to pick up some of her belongings when Sharkeisha, 16, viciously punched and kicked her.
“I was just in shock. I was like oh my God. Did she really do this? You’re supposed to be my close friend,” Manuel said.
“We were talking in school earlier that day. She made it seem like there was nothing wrong with her,” she added.
Sharkeisha or Sharkeysha, the correct spelling is still unknown, has not been arrested nor suspended from school since the beating took place off school grounds.
Manuel’s mother however has filed a police report with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
