Sydney Saniao, 18, of Federal Way, Wash., outside Sacramento County Main Jail in Sacramento after her release from custody on Tuesday, recounts the events that led to her arrest late Friday at the California State Fair. Prosecutors declined to file assault charges against the Washington woman Tuesday. Saniao, on vacation in Sacramento, said she and friends, all 17 and 18, were harassed and attacked by an older group of men and women in their 30s and that she was arrested after trying to defend her friends.
