BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport woman is asking for justice after she says a friend of her daughter was attacked at Seaside Park over the weekend.

The woman, who did not want to be identified, says she was with her 14-year-old daughter Saturday afternoon at Seaside Park when some 18-year-old girls allegedly started harassing her and her friend.

The woman says the girls went to their car for protection, but the older teens still tried to come after them in the car.
