We have yet another shocking videotape released by police of a mob of teenagers beating down a defenseless person. This attack occurred in Queens, New York where teenagers jumped from a late model Nissan Ultima and beat a 67-year-old woman with her own cane while taunting and laughing at her.
The attack occurred on August 4th and police released the videotape.
The teens stole the victim’s cellphone. As with earlier videos of arbitrary attacks, it is the utter lack of empathy or mercy that shocks the viewer. These teens clearly enjoy beating down a defenseless woman and laugh at her pain.
Surveillance video shows the woman struggling to hold onto her cane on 169th Street as a group of teenagers apparently tries to steal it. The group then appears to push the woman down during the attack, and while she was dazed and on her knees, not only did they steal her Samsung cellphone, but proceeded to hit her with her own cane, according to authorities.
Police are urging anyone with information to call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS or Spanish 1-888-57-PISTA. Tips can also be sent via http://www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
