Incident Report: Lake Arrowhead, CA

 

A Latino man and his mother who were doing yard work in California were verbally attacked by a woman who called them “illegals” and “rapists,” and a video of the encounter has gone viral.
Esteban Guzman, a 27-year-old systems administrator who is also a part-time landscaper, told CNN’s Don Lemon that he confronted the unidentified woman after hearing her yell, “Go back to Mexico” to his mother.
“I said ‘Hey, what’s your problem?'” Guzman, who said he was born and raised in the Lake Arrowhead area of Southern California, told Lemon. “And she says, ‘You’re all illegal. Go back to Mexico.’ And I say, ‘I am a United States citizen. What are you talking about?'”
