Roda Osman, the woman who recently made headlines for her claims of being assaulted with a brick outside a Houston club, is now facing serious legal consequences as authorities charge her with felony theft by deception.
She reported being attacked with a brick after refusing to give a man her phone number outside a Houston club. However, the investigation raised discrepancies as Osman provided conflicting statements.
The footage challenged the narrative of a brick attack, exposing inconsistencies in Osman’s claims.
The situation escalated when it was revealed that a GoFundMe account had been created just a day after the reported assault, raising a significant amount by capitalizing on Osman’s alleged victimhood.
The page described Osman as a woman who had been hospitalized after a brick attack, claiming she was surrounded by men who did nothing.
TikTok user and mental health advocate Daphne Sutton alerted police to a potential scam, citing a similar incident in Minneapolis in 2020 where Osman allegedly orchestrated a fraudulent GoFundMe campaign.
The Harris County District Attorney’s Office is seeking $50,000 bail for the theft by deception charge Osman faces in Houston. The GoFundMe account associated with her alleged scam has been frozen after multiple donors reported it as fraudulent.
