The Oakland Salon Beatdown Video trial this month

The Oakland Salon Beatdown Video is back in the news as the trail starts in April. According to ABC News Channel 7 in the Bay Area, the pretrial hearing was held in Alameda County Superior Court, Department 104.

Melissa Seals is the owner of the Oakland hair salon where she was the focus of a brutal beatdown by not one, but six women in the spring of 2009. The women entered the salon and two started the attack while one made a video of it. They then stole her merchandise and raised the blinds so people walking by could see what they were doing, according to The Huffington Post.

Here's the ABC News video (Warning: it's graphic):



The ABC video reports that in 2010, 36-year-old Melissa Seals is suffering from Post-Tramatic Stress Disorder. One of the attackers is named Kavina Bryant, who attended the hearing. Bryant is the woman in the green sweat pants and blue halter top who does much of the beating of Seals.

Another woman, who Melissa Seals identifies as "Janilla Edgerton" (she has no Internet trail) in the video (with the red sweat pants) also hit and kicked her,and Seals said the woman's still roaming the neighborhood, even with an arrest warrant active on her. As of this writing and to this blogger's knoweldge, Edgerton has not been arrested.

Seals needs help. She's lost 75 percent of her clients, and as ABC was talking to her, someone from EBMUD turned off her water. The problem is other customers were scared off by the attack.

I don't have contact information for Melissa Seals; ABC News Channel 7 may. Seals does not have a criminal record so she can work at another salon with ease.

Stay tuned.
