SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Police were called to a La Jolla mansion known to host Airbnb parties for the second time in months following reports of wild and violent parties.

Alysa Dale says the multi-million dollar mansion was the scene of a violent party packed with teenagers over the weekend.

Amid the chaos, Dale says her 18-year-old daughter was brutally attacked.

“Physically she’s fine, but mentally she’s broken. I have a broken child right now,” Dale said.

Dale says she stopped by the home Sunday morning to get answers.

“Broken light fixtures, urine on the floor, drug residue on tables. It was a scene.”

She says the party was promoted on Snapchat. Hundreds of people paid $10 each to get in.

Dale says her daughter was jumped and knocked unconscious by five girls who were stealing party-goers cell phones.

Dale says at least two people brandished handguns.

In May, 10News cameras were at the same mansion after shots rang out at a party being rented for $2,500 per night on Airbnb.

The company says it screens all hosts and guests, but that no background check is infallible.

The city has also vowed to come up with a plan to regulate and enforce short-term vacation rentals.

Dale isn’t waiting around. She’s taking legal action against Airbnb and the homeowners.
