A New York City man is facing charges after being accused of punching a 15-year-old he was attempting to escort off the premises of a Greek Festival in New Rochelle.
Videos of the incident, which happened Saturday night at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, are circulating on social media.
A second security guard is also seen grabbing the teen by the hair.
"He grabs my hair and throws me like some doll," said Micaela Aguero. "Like I'm not a human, like I'm not someone's daughter."
The teen spoke exclusively to News 12 after learning the security guard who allegedly punched her, identified by New Rochelle Police as 44-year-old Alejandro Rosario, was charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
"It's like., how could you do that to someone?" she said. "It's immoral. It was wrong, and it lacked common human decency."
Aguero said it happened after she was involved in a fight with another teen at the fair.
She admits she spit on the security guard who she alleges made sexual comments as he escorted her off the property.
"It was extremely aggressive," said Ana Delgado, mother. "I just could not believe how aggressive they were towards my daughter. It was just horrible."
Delgado wants to see the second security guard charged for dragging her daughter by the hair. She is also concerned for her child who is now being bullied by her peers.
"I have nightmares. I feel like I'm not protecting my daughter," she said as she fought back tears. "I'm scared for her wellbeing, I'm scared how is this going to affect her emotionally."
Aguero said she is not hiding her bruises and hopes her story can help others who experience bullying or violence.
"After everything that happened to me I'm still standing, I'm still standing," she said.
