A group of young women brutally attacked a 15-year-old girl who was sitting on a bench in a Brooklyn, N.Y., park while bystanders cheered and filmed the beating.
The assault happened last Wednesday at about 6 p.m. and was recorded by an unidentified witness who uploaded it to Facebook (video below).
Three young women punched the girl in the face and kicked her in the back numerous times during the unprovoked attack.
According to the New York Daily News, the man who is filming the group assault is heard yelling, “Oh, Oh! Oh, Yeah! Oh, Yeah! This is my young hitters right here!”
People nearby also cheer the attackers on.
WABC reports that the NYPD is aware of the video and is searching for the suspects and the man who filmed the assault.
“We can’t afford for this to happen in our community," Tony Herbert, of the National Action Network, said at a press conference last Friday, notes PIX11.com.
"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," added Herbert. "And get them the counseling or whatever it is hey 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.”
