A group of Brooklyn teens allegedly attacked a woman sitting on a park bench as bystanders cheered them on and filmed it.
A video of the beating was posted to Facebook by someone who may have been a witness to the attack, according to My Fox NY.
Three girls in the video approach a woman sitting on a bench in Prospect Park and yell at her. Other boys and girls curse and cheer them on as they punch and kick the woman until she falls to the ground.
Community leaders are asking the victim to come forward so that police can identify the attackers.
“We can’t afford for this to happen in our community,” said Tony Herbert of the National Action Network on Friday. “What we are asking for is the victim, we are asking her to come forward because we need to get these people off the street. And get them the counseling or whatever it is they need. So they won’t do this to somebody else. They thought it was fun to kick them literally in their face and laugh about it.”
