CHICKASHA, Oklahoma -- A Chickasha couple claims a group of angry teens beat them unconscious and are now bragging about the attack on Facebook.

Tina Marie and James Cooper were sitting on their porch when they heard a baby scream.

"We got four kids of our own so I guess that motherly instinct kicked in and she ran off to the corner of our neighbors house," James Cooper said.

They couple claims they found a group of drunk teens taunting her neighbor. Tina Marie yelled out ‘hey' the next thing she knew, without warning, a teen punched her to the ground.

"I don't remember any of it," she said.

As she lay unconscious, James Cooper tried to defend his wife.

"But the one who started it all decided he wanted to go ahead and use my head as a football. He kicked me in the head and knocked me down again," he said.

The couple believes some of the teens attend school with their daughter. The police report shows authorities are looking for two suspects. Yet a third girl who identifies herself as Haylee "Ride or Die" Marie on Facebook, admits she a gangster and enjoyed issuing the beat down.

The 18-year old writes in a post to a friend, "Bobby call me. I gotta tell you a story. I just beat this dude's a** and hit a b***h. I got my second assault & battery charge tonight."

According to the Coopers, police haven't made any arrests, despite the admissions from several teens.

"I'm pissed off I feel that they are sending a message that this is OK. (The teens) sent a message that they are gonna come and finish the job and therefore they are threatening my life," Cooper said.
