A 20-year-old woman from Zwolle is looking for the people who assaulted her and a friend after an evening out in her home town. The assault started with a man calling her friend a "nigger" and ended with the Zwolle woman being hit in the face with a glass, leaving her with a deep cut under the eye and permanent scarring, she writes on Facebook.

The woman and her friend were walking home in the center of Zwolle when a man shouted at her friend that he is a "nigger", she writes on Facebook. A fight erupted when she addressed the man on his behavior.

Several people started beating her friend up. She tried to intervene and was also attacked. "In the end a woman hit me hard in the face with a glass", she writes. "While I was just trying to protect my friend!"

"The woman was so cowardly that she immediately ran away." the Zwolle woman continues. "By the time the police arrived, the two men and the woman all fled." She is looking for this woman and two men and shares their descriptions on

The other "10/20 men" that were involved in the fight does not interest her. "I hope you're ashamed. I hope this message reaches the perpetrators and they realize what they have done", she writes.

The Zwolle woman did press charges with the police, according to AD. The police are looking for witnesses.
