Yasmine took to Instagram to share some very graphic pictures of the terrible injuries she suffered after the incident that happened on May 30. Meanwhile, Bonell, who was restrained quickly after the stabbing incident, has been charged with hate crime and attempted murder with a deadly weapon, reports News3. In a series of pictures she shared of her injuries, Jackson wrote: "I was stabbed 7 times right by my house because “I’m a n****r”. This woman chased me down and started stabbing me. She said it’s because I was a n****r and that’s all I could hear while I was being stabbed. I can’t move my neck at all. I’m scared to be alone. I asked people to help me because she was stabbing me and nobody helped. Until someone did, actually a few people did & I am thankful for you. I pray to God that if you have any kind of hatred in your heart towards black people that you heal it. I didn’t deserve this, nobody does. Oh, & btw I’m still f***ing proud to be black."
In another set of pictures, we can see her head bandaged with traces of blood seen all over her forehead. In the video seen on The Sun report, Bonell can be seen laying on the ground initially as she is handcuffed before the police lead her away onto the back seat of the police cruiser. The pictures Jackson shared shows her having large gashes on either side of her face with cloth dressing covering the injured part of her face. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said that they were called to check on reports that a woman was being attacked. Yasmine was rushed to the hospital with cuts on her head and body.
Witnesses who were at the scene told police that Bonell had raised plenty of noise complaints about Jackson, her upstairs neighbor. Bonell, a Latino woman, allegedly threw a broom at Jackson before jumping in to attack her. According to the Las Vegas Police Department, Bonell told them that "she was just out for a walk and does not own a knife." Jackson's mother, Joh' Vonnie, also took to social media to share pictures of her daughter's wounds with a caption that read, "Look what this woman did to my daughter. She tried to kill my daughter for being Black. My daughter has a good heart and has dedicated her time as a nurse to help others." She added, "She did not deserve this! F*** anyone who has enough hate in their heart to want to do this to anyone!"

Following the incident, Jackson created a GoFundMe page with the title "Justice for Yasmine Jackson" where she details the bloody assault she endured the previous day before explaining she had to be given a blood transfusion as she was taken to the hospital. "This incident has left me extremely traumatized and I plan on breaking my lease and moving out of those apartments until I'm mentally prepared enough to move on my own again," she wrote on the campaign donation's page, which has so far received over $20,000 so far.
