Last week, while search for capital murder suspect Lucious Perkins, U.S. Marshals executed a search warrant on the wrong Jackson home.
In the confusion a U.S. Marshals Service Task Force agent was shot.
Now there are new allegations, and a criminal complaint filed against the U.S. Marshals Service regarding the way officers acted during the botched raid.
We spoke to the family who lived in the home on Archer Avenue, in Jackson.
"They barged into the house," said Rosi Lopez. "They just started shouting. They didn't identify who they were."
Rosi Lopez says her family was terrified. She says Marshals tackled her, knocking her to the ground then dragged her by her hair back inside the house.
"Those white officers were attacking Rosi," said Bill Chandler, Executive Director of the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance. "They were calling her names including the name ____ Mexican, go back to Mexico and a number of other words."
Lopez says other family members were beaten so badly they had to be taken to the hospital.
"The way we were treated, nobody should be treated that way," said Lopez. "We are human beings. The way they did us was wrong. They don't deserve them badges that they have."
MIRA has filed a criminal complaint and is sending a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder requesting an investigation to determine whether members of the U.S. Marshals Task Force violated the victim's civil rights.
"The way they did us was wrong and the words that they said was wrong," said Lopez. "And if people see that this is okay, something is wrong with you, something is really wrong with you."
Phone calls to the U.S. Marshals Service for comment have not yet been returned.
