Mikalah Gordon assaulted during a robbery in Las Vegas

Mikalah Gordon was robbed and assaulted by four men in Las Vegas early Wednesday morning. Mikalah “was taking a break from recording music when a man pointing a gun approached her and a male friend, Gordon’s mother, Victoria Cavaricci,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

After being robbed of “a cell phone and $5 in cash,” Mikalah’s “head was slammed on the sidewalk by an assailant who was angry that she had looked at his face,” and the other “assailants groped her,” according to the paper, and she had a panic attack.

“She thought she was going to die,” her mother said. “She’s scarred and scared, but it could have been so much worse. Police said she’s so lucky she’s alive.”

The paper says Mikalah “was putting together songs she planned to sing this weekend at a benefit in Orange County, Calif., for kids with cancer.”
