Cowboys fan says Eagles fans assaulted her

A Bethlehem woman says she was attacked by two Eagles fans for wearing a Tony Romo jersey before last weekend's game, according to news reports.

Per the Allentown Morning Call, Jaime Wert, 27, was returning home from a convenience store around 9:30 p.m. Friday night when she heard someone yell, "Hey Romo!"

When Wert turned around, she was confronted by two men wearing Eagles jerseys, one of whom struck her in the face, causing a minor cut.

''I really freaked out because I could feel the blood running down my cheek,'' she told the Morning Call. ''I kicked the one guy in his leg and they both ran.''

Per the report, Wert said the attackers may have thought she was a man because she had her hair tucked into her shirt.

Wert said she did not get a good enough look at the men to give a detailed description to police.

Wert talked to Fox 29 about the incident in the video below.
