Rosalinda Cunningham, who is nine-months pregnant and  her boyfriend Vincent Pace were leaving the lot, headed to the hospital, after she began having contractions while shopping.

But as they pulled out of the lot, they were surrounded by a mob for an unknown reason. 

"They literally just stood in front of the car -- started banging on the car -- kicking the car telling him to get out of the vehicle," Cunningham told WTVR

Added Pace: "And they tell me to get out of the vehicle -- my doors are locked her doors  are unlocked. They tried to drag her out."

Pace said he got out of the car to protect his pregnant girlfriend when a group of teenagers began to attack him.
