The woman came back with her cellphone and tried to film Lopez and her boyfriend.

The man got out of the truck and retrieved a pole before striking their car repeatedly as they drove off.

Their car was left with a dent and scratch following the ordeal.

The couple say they have no idea why the pair followed or targeted them.

‘We were just in shock. We didn’t know what was going. Why were they doing it? They don’t know us. They were being really mean and racist,’ Lopez told KTLA. 

‘I was afraid. I didn’t know what they had in their car. I just wanted to get home.

‘We want to get justice because it’s not right. I don’t want them to just go freely and continue to do this to someone else.’
