All five boys were in the bathroom when attacked. One teenager had his head slammed into the ground while another was kicked in the head, according to parent David Leif. The teenagers' phones, jewelry, and IDs were also stolen before the suspects fled the scene. 

"[My son] didn't get his chain stolen," said Leif. "He had [taken] it off and gave it back to me. And said I'm not comfortable wearing this anymore."

Lief said his son came home terrified following the incident. 

"This morning we woke up and it completely turned to anger," said Johansson. "I want our community back. I want Los Angeles back to the way it used to be. We have to hold whether it's Westfield accountable [or] elected officials accountable. Crime and violence have to be dealt with."
