TORRANCE (CBSLA) — A Torrance woman caught on camera last month going on a racist tirade as another woman worked out at a local park has been charged in connection with a 2019 incident.

Lena Hernandez, 54, has been charged with battery in an incident that happened last October at Del Amo Mall where she was accused of pushing and striking a victim, according to the city attorney’s office.

Torrance police said the incident was reported to police and a formal crime report was taken.

Hernandez, 54, a retired social worker was arrested Friday at about 1 p.m., according to the Torrance Police Department. She was booked and later released on bail.

As for the two incidents that occurred at Wilson Park on June 10, the city attorney’s office said there was “insufficient” evidence to support criminal charges.

Anyone with information about the two park incidents was asked to contact Torrance police.

    I am the attorney representing all three victims in this case. Although this is one small step towards justice, we were hoping that the City Prosecutor would have Lena Hernandez held accountable for all of her actions.

    1. I would agree. It is time for the majority “Latino/Hispanic” population to do something about their racism against minorities, now that they are no longer a minority in California.

    This is what Trump has unleashed. Before him, people like her would not express their racial openly.
