Florida Teen Recognizes Her Attacker as Classmate's Mom

A 17-year-old Florida teen who went to an ATM on Saturday evening was ambushed and viciously attacked when she returned to her car.

Her attacker grabbed the back of her head and smashed her face into the steering wheel, causing a lump to form on her forehead.

The attacker then told her she was going to kill her and take all her things.

When the teen was finally able to get a glimpse of her attacker, she immediately recognized her as one of her classmate's mom.


"Mrs. Perras?"

"I SAID I'M W... What? Oh. Uh. Julie? I mean... Hi Julie! Hahahaha. Yeah. [awkward pause] So. How's your mom?"

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, the teen victim confronted 45-year-old Tammy Perras, telling her she knew her daughter.

Perras immediately stopped her attack and began to plead with the teen not to press charges, telling her it was just a "joke."

HA. HA. HA. I slammed your face into the steering wheel and threatened to murder you. GET IT?

The teen then gave Perras $5 to go away.

Cops were able to catch up with Perras a short time later at a convenience store, where she was probably spending her big $5 score on some Slim Jims and cigarettes.

But police were able to get the teen's money back before Perras could spend it.

She took the cash out of her bra and handed it to the police, because classy!

Perras was arrested and remains in the Volusia County Jail on burglary with assault and robbery charges.
