Lisa Hall, 44, from Bognor Regis in West Sussex, was attacked by Zoe Lee, 22, and her mum Joan, 47, while on a night out. The Lees have both been convicted of grievous bodily harm.


A woman beaten up on a night out by a mother and daughter says she was ‘attacked for being beautiful with big boobs’.

Lisa Hall, 44, from Bognor Regis in West Sussex, claims that Zoe Lee, 22, and her mother Joan, 47, were ‘jealous’ of her looks and her popularity.

Lisa was punched to the ground, kicked and stamped on before eventually blacking out – and was left with several injures including a broken ankle.

The attack was so vicious Lisa had to use a commode as she recovered.

The 44-year-old said she can think of no reason for the attack – other than jealousy.

Zoe and Joan were both convicted of grievous bodily harm after a trial at Portsmouth Crown Court and sentenced to five years in prison for the attack.

Lisa was enjoying a night out in the center of Bognor Regis in January 2018 when she was set upon by the pair.

Her husband Danny had dropped her off along with her daughter Holly.

At roughly 11.30pm Lisa decided she was too tired to go onto a nightclub and instead called Danny to pick them both up.

Speaking to Mail Online she said: “All of a sudden one of the girls in front turned around and gave me a nasty stare, before calling me a f***ing dirty prostitute.”

The aggressive girl then walked toward Lisa and said it again. Then the physical attack started.

Lisa felt a searing pain across her face – she was punched, and then pushed, hit and kicked.

The 44-year-old fell to the ground and tried to shield her teeth ‘instinctively’.

As she lay stricken on the ground she noticed an older woman – Joan – had joined in.

Lisa screamed in pain and everything went black until she awoke with daughter Holly standing over her in floods of tears.

Danny had also arrived and he insisted she was going to hospital – where she ended up in a wheelchair in A&E.

Nurses had to cut Lisa out of her jeans, reports the Mail, so they could assess the damage.

And when she saw her right foot it looked ‘wretched’ and was ‘twisted backwards’ where it was broken.

There were even fears she could lose her leg.

While still recovering from the shock of the attack Lisa was visited by police who had launched an investigation into the horror assault.

The next day Lisa underwent a six-hour operation to insert metal plates, screws and bolts in her right leg. It’s left her with a 12-inch scar running down her leg.

With the help of CCTV detectives were able to identify her attackers.

The police charged Zoe and Joan Lee with GBH, alongside a third woman. They all denied it, which meant a trial.

Lisa bravely turned down the offer of a screen during the trial at Portsmouth Crown Court.

After a nine day trial both mother and daughter were found guilty of GBH and in April last year, were sentenced to five years in prison. The third woman was found not guilty.

And the pair have never explained why they launched the vicious assault.

“All I could think was that Zoe was jealous of the way I looked and the fact I was popular – everyone in the bar knew me,” she said.

“Maybe her mother was jealous too, so she joined in.”

Lisa added: “But I reckon that pair were jealous of my big boobs and blonde hair, so they beat me up for it.”

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
