Weaver was the first to attack the college freshman after she passed the trio while staring down at her phone. He ran up behind her and kicked her hard in the back. A tussle ensued and Majors bit Weaver, then yelled for help.

I can't imagine the grief that the parents have after having their daughter be the victim of such a senseless and horrific crime. The piece of shit is still being violent while in prison, hopefully he will tangle with the wrong person.
