A gun-toting thief stalked a Harlem man before choking him into unconsciousness and robbing him, according to startling video released by police.

The 23-year-old man is seen in the lobby of his building on West 147th Street and Amsterdam Avenue about 10 p.m. Friday when the stranger begins stalking him as they ascend the stairs.

The assailant was described as a dark-skinned male with a beard, mustache, black sunglasses and a black backpack.

As the victim stops in front of his apartment door and searches his backpack, the stranger continues up the stairs to the next floor — where he reaches into his knapsack and pulls out a dark gun, the video shows.

The crook then returns and approaches the man from behind. He places the victim in a chokehold, causing him to fall limp moments later.

As the resident lies unconscious at the top of the stairwell, the brute grabs his phone and reaches into the victim’s pants pockets for his belongings, the video shows.

The thief fled the building with the victim’s cellphone, backpack and wallet containing $1,000 in cash, police said.

The victim was treated at the scene for bruising to his neck.

Stung by criticism after a string of violent crimes, BART’s Board of Directors voted Thursday to update the transit system’s surveillance cameras and install emergency call boxes.

The two measures, approved in a 6-3 vote, were part of a $28 million public safety package announced this week by General Manager Grace Crunican. It also included proposals to build barriers to deter fare evasion and install a large screen at Civic Center Station to remind riders that they are under surveillance.

Her most controversial idea was a ban on panhandling, which prompted vigorous opposition from civil rights activists. Some said it would unfairly target the mostly African American youth who break-dance on BART for money.

“The answer is not a rushed surveillance proposal that poses a unique threat to Latinos and African Americans,” said Mike Chase of the American Civil Liberties Union, arguing that technology could enable racial profiling.

Although most speakers at the meeting objected to BART’s reform effort, some applauded the extra police patrols. One woman dangled a sign that said, “More Police = Rider Safety.”

Board Director Rebecca Saltzman raised questions about the $28 million cost of the reforms, which include $25 million in recommended capital improvements, and $3 million annually for labor and other costs. She noted that Crunican’s list of proposals lacked a financing plan.

But Keller argued that the cost of inaction “is far greater.”

As she dressed for her mother-daughter day of brunch, shopping, and a movie, weighing heavily on her mind was President Trump’s racist tweet questioning the intelligence of both NBA superstar LeBron James and CNN’s Don Lemon. It was also former President Barack Obama’s 57th birthday, so she decided to put on her Black Lives Matter shirt and promptly forgot about it. Until she entered a Target store across Route 38 from Cherry Hill Mall and noticed a white female shopper shooting her a dirty look.

Gasman continued shopping. As she waited for her daughter to exit a dressing room, an older black woman approached and said, “I love your T-shirt.” The stranger walked away, only to return and say, “I want you to know that your life matters to me as well.” She also took Gasman’s photo.

ticket seller flashed her a smile and said, “Nice shirt.” But an older white male rolled his eyes and shot her a dirty look. A black woman in a parking lot with two young boys in tow smiled.

LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) -- Lincoln Police released surveillance footage Tuesday of the suspects they believe are responsible for killing 36-year-old Jessica Brandon.

Brandon was shot during a home invasion on July 31st. Medics rushed Brandon to the hospital where she later died. No arrests have been made in the shooting.

Video shows the suspects forced their way into a home in the 1900 Block of Fairfield Street. Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said the crime was not a random act, and there is no ongoing threat to the public.

LPD said the video was shot in infrared, so some of the colors are off.

One moment, the friendly 40-year-old — with a walking stick in his hand and cans of beer in his backpack — ambled along a darkened street just before 3 a.m. The next moment, he was accosted, robbed of his backpack and beaten so badly he seemingly tried to escape by crawling across a six-lane road before collapsing midway.

Now, in new filings and court presentations, Montgomery County authorities are laying out why they think the actions of at least two of the three suspects — a 15-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy both charged as adults — amount to murder.

“The suspects watched the victim lay motionless in the travel lanes of Georgia Avenue,” detectives wrote in a recent arrest warrant. “Approximately a minute later, the suspects watched a vehicle run over the victim.”

CLEVELAND - In February, an organization called the Indy Ten Point Coalition wanted to expand its Indianapolis efforts in Cleveland to reduce violence and keep the streets safer. Since then, some residents said they’d like to step away and try another solution.

"People that have a voice, but really haven't been invited to the table,” said Kim Snyder. “Build relationship between all of us."

Snyder is a pastor in Cleveland. She said she wants to invite pastors, politicians, community activists, police, and ex-gang members to have regular conversations about how to make Cleveland safer, and how to erase racism.

"I would like to see more white people on the streets, more pastors on the streets,” said Snyder. "I think the city is missing love, and we need to build these bridges. It’s our job to be on the streets, and the streets are bad because we haven't been there. If every church got together, one weekend and rose up… we could change our city in a weekend."

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A man who served nine years in prison for an aggravated robbery is now charged in connection with slaying of a couple at their car lot during another robbery.

Joseph McAlpine, 29, is accused of being one of two people who killed Michael Kuznik, 47, and Trina Tomola, 46, on April 14 at the couple's car dealership, Mr. Car's on East 185th Street.

DNA from the car lot connected McAlpine to the slayings, court records say.

The assailants also killed the couple's dog. They stole surveillance equipment and computers that contained records of purchases from the store.

Investigators previously said it appeared the assailants were familiar with the business. Police scoured the neighborhood looking for surveillance videos from other businesses but came up empty.

At least two cars were stolen from the lot, a 2006 BMW 528I, which was later found abandoned in the 3300 block of West 48th Street.

A second car, a blue 2006 Mercedes SL, was not found. Police also tested a bag of keys found in a nearby park, and had the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner swab the couple's dead dog to see if he bit the assailants and had their DNA in his mouth.

McAlpine was released from prison in August 2016, according to state prison records.

Australia Melbourne Black Teen Gangs Terrorize - Colin Flaherty reviews and gives commentary on news with headlines "'Police can't touch us': 100 African youths gather for 'war' as terrified Melbourne residents are told to lock their doors before cops claimed there was 'no threat to safety'

Terrified Melbourne residents have accused police of having their heads in the sand after two African gangs who bragged 'police can't touch us' wreaked havoc through the city's north-west.

Locals were told to 'stay inside and lock their doors' shortly after 100 youths gathered in Taylors Hill at about 5.30pm on Wednesday.

Heavily-armed riot police wearing bullet-proof vests were pelted with rocks when they attempted to move the crowd on, while roads were closed and traffic was diverted.

Residents were told rival gangs had arranged to meet 'for war' at Lonzo Park.

Despite the warnings, Victoria Police insisted there was 'no threat to community safety'.

'Don't tell me that this country is safe, because I don't recall ever feeling as frightened as my kids did today. Enough is enough.'

Another said: 'Residents told to stay indoors, but nah no threat to community safety,' while a third noted: 'Seriously, don't insult our intelligence.'

Residents reported seeing children as young as 12, while some were wearing school uniforms and carrying backpacks.

One local told the Nine Network youths running past their home yelled 'police can't touch us'.

'The [police] dogs were out there, that was a bit later on, it just got full on. My neighbour on the corner said they were throwing rocks at her fence.'

The woman's husband said the once peaceful area had been troublesome for the past two years.

'We've been here nine years and this is the worst yet... You build a nice house in a nice area... you don't want to start seeing things like that, where is it coming from?' he questioned.

'In one area, there is a massive group the police said were Sudanese... there was another really large group of Sudanese and they basically said they don't have it under control but there is a strong police presence,' they told the Herald Sun.

Racial Slurs and Fist Flying Swimming Pool Argy Bargy - Colin Flaherty reviews and gives commentary on news with headlines "Brawl involving 40 people at Nashville water park allegedly sparked over racial slurs"

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — It’s not how you’d imagine your typical family gathering but an all-out brawl between two families, one white and one black, broke out over the weekend at Wave Country.

Holt’s hand and eye socket are broken. Doctors are implanting a metal plate in his face Monday afternoon.

All after Holt says white men yelled racial slurs at his family and beat them up.

“I wasn’t scared. I was just in pain. I wanted the police to press charges, but for some reason they didn’t,” said Holt.

They didn’t because police tell FOX 17 News there’s no clear way to identify who is the victim and who is the villain. The white family involved says they were the ones racially insulted and defended themselves.

“They had their kids throwing stuff at us calling us white trash this and that and all kind of craziness,” Jonathan Sellers said.

Both families agree, saying this all started when a man from the white family bumped into the floats of three black girls.

The girls accused him of yelling racial slurs and told their parents — something Sellers disagrees with.

Holt’s family says they approached the white men.

But this is where the family’s stories split.

“With us approaching them, that’s when all the aggression from them started and that’s when we were called the ‘N’ word,” Amanda Holt said.

“As soon as I got over there, I said 'what happened? What happened? Then I see fists start flying,” Sellars said.

Police say they had to separate 40 people involved in the fight and have interviewed several people. Meanwhile, both families also accuse Wave Country of not having security to keep the fight from starting.

Sioux Empire Fair Carnival Knockout Game Fights Attacks by Black Teens - Colin Flaherty reviews and gives commentary on news with headlines "Investigators Say Video of Teen Fight Doesn't Tell Whole Story"

SIOUX FALLS, SD - It's caught on camera, but investigators say a video of an attack at the Sioux Empire Fair doesn't tell the whole story. One clip shows what appears to be a teen attacking another person. Another fight, later, shows a teen punching someone else in the head.

KELOLAND News received a few calls about these videos. One caller says someone even posted them on social media for Likes and Shares. Some are saying it looks like it could be part of what's called the Knockout game. CBS This Morning reported on this five years ago. A person sneaks up on a random victim to try to knock them out, typically with a punch. A captain with the Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office says, based on the investigation, that's not what happened at the fair. As for other families, they're not letting it ruin their time.

"We have received a report on it. Investigators are already working on it," Capt. Mike Walsh, Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office, said.

Walsh can't say much, but says these videos only show a portion of what happened.

"Our understanding is there was a verbal and physical altercation just prior to that and then the video happens and afterwards law enforcement was contacted," Walsh said.

Walsh says it's not unusual to see fights like that at the fair, but says it's pretty uncommon for them to be a random, unprovoked attack.

AUG 06, 2018 | 1:45 PM
Angry protesters called for a boycott of a Brooklyn nail salon Monday days after a botched eyebrow treatment led to a violent indoor melee complete with pushing, shoving and a worker swinging a broken broomstick.

Tensions were so high between the mostly-black protesters and the Chinese employees of New Red Apple Nails salon that cops, shortly before 3 p.m., had to escort the workers out of the shop into a van for their protection.

Outside, demonstrators, who backed the black woman and her grandmother whose complaints sparked the scuffle, showered the workers with booes -- and a few tossed objects.

Some held signs that said “Black $$$ Matter,” and shouted “shut them down.”

ccording to store owner Huiyue Zheng, who was arrested after the fracas along with customer Christina Thomas, the footage shows Thomas becoming aggressive with salon staff following what she considered a botched eyebrow job.

In that video, according to Zheng, an upset Thomas is seen leaving the shop after having one brow trimmed, then coming back with a friend to further argue her case. Zheng claims that when salon employees tried to calm Thomas down, pushing and punching ensued, which led to the violence at the center of Monday’s protests.

The incident was sparked by a $5 eyebrow job gone awry. According to Zheng, Thomas complained that too much hair had been removed from one of her brows, then didn’t want to pay for that procedure or the $14 pedicure she’d just received.

“They didn’t complain about the pedicure,” Zheng said of Thomas and her grandmother. “Then, one of the lady goes to do eyebrows. She j says ‘I don’t like it. I don’t want to pay anything.’So my boss says, ‘`You have to pay.’”

Scores of angry protesters forced the closure of a Brooklyn nail salon Monday, throwing bottles and shoes as cops escorted out the owner and a worker in the wake of a racially charged brawl between employees and customers.

The tensions were reminiscent of the black-on-Asian boycotts of nearby Brooklyn businesses of the early 1990s, which were followed by the deadly three-day riot in Crown Heights in 1991.

[links and excerpts below]
By Nadra Nittle Updated Aug 9, 2018, 1:56pm EDT
A truck loaded with Nike Air Force 1 sneakers and Christian Louboutin shoes turned up in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago last week. It was a “bait truck” parked by Norfolk Southern Railway police, with assistance from Chicago Police, to lure thieves to their arrest. The truck traveled to more than one site in the predominantly black community on the city’s southwest side. Police arrested three people during the sting, which was intended to curb cargo theft in the area, according to Norfolk Southern.

A Chicago Police spokesperson said that the department only assisted with enforcement of the Norfolk Southern sting. He directed requests from comment to the railway company. The Chicago field office of the FBI told Vox it would not comment for this story. But over the past decade, law enforcement agencies in the US have increasingly turned to bait devices to reduce crime.

Bait devices, be they unattended vehicles or packages, are intended to be stolen. Police typically leave them in high-crime neighborhoods in spots where thieves are most likely to take them. A parked bait car, for instance, would be left in an area where car theft is a problem. Bait devices are rigged with surveillance equipment and tracking devices so that authorities, usually waiting nearby, can quickly catch offenders who make off with them.

But as the Black Lives Matter movement has drawn widespread attention to anti-black policing and the disproportionate number of African Americans in prison, reports of a bait truck in an impoverished community of color have predictably sparked an outcry. The Englewood residents seen in video footage regarded it as another hostile act by law enforcement instead of a bid to cut down on crime. Moreover, the alleged placement of the bait truck near a basketball court filled with kids signaled, to some, a ploy to ensnare vulnerable youth in the criminal justice system rather than career criminals.

“There were a lot of young guys playing basketball,” according to Mckenzie, who said he spotted the bait truck while driving nearby. “Why would they do that in the poorest communities to people who don’t have anything better?”

QUEEN VILLAGE (WPVI) -- Two boys placed a black doll hanging from a noose at a Queen Village as a prank, apparently having no idea of the racial implications of their act, officials say.

About 30 parents, their children, and others gathered at Weccacoe Square playground, creating chalk drawings of love, peace, and harmony in the wake of the incident.

It was earlier in the day that residents looked on in disbelief and disgust at the doll hanging from a tree in the playground.

A recreation worker found the black baby doll hanging from a noose tied to a wire.

Police Commissioner Richard Ross came to the scene to see the act for himself.

"This is the type of behavior that happens that makes you sick, particularly in this day and age and in this city," said Commissioner Ross.

Hours later, Councilman Mark Squilla announced two pre-teen boys under the age of 13, both black and white, came forward Thursday night to say they were responsible for the doll and meant it as a prank.

Squilla said, "They thought they were going to creep people out and make it scary for people as they came into the playground; they succeeded in that, but they said they didn't understand the ramifications of what would happen from it."

There is also relief that the incident apparently had no relation to the plans to place a memorial at the playground marking it as an historic burial site for one of the city's largest black churches.

This summer, social media seems to be flooded with viral videos depicting overt acts of racism in the U.S. — from immigrants being openly disparaged to an alarming number of posts showing Americans calling fellow citizens the N word. Viewers can’t help but wonder if this is because Americans have cameras in their pocket at nearly all times, or an actual rising tide of hate unleashed by these divisive political times.

But is it a rising trend? The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), one of America’s largest civil rights organizations, released a statement regarding a new study showing a rise in hate crimes last year, conducted by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino. According to new data, “hate crime totals for the 10 largest cities rose for four straight years to the highest level in a decade.”

Lecia Brooks, outreach director of the Southern Poverty Law Center — a nonprofit legal advocacy organization specializing in civil rights and public interest litigation that monitors hate incidents and hate crimes — says this is a trend that grew after the 2016 presidential election.

“It really started with the presidential campaign and [Trump’s] vilification and dehumanization of Mexicans, and making fun of people with disabilities, and vilifying Muslims as terrorists. And then he won. … It’s encouraging this type of behavior,” she said.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Bailey Cantrell was sitting inside her car at a Nashville gas station parking lot early Saturday morning when a complete stranger violently attacked her.

According to a report from Metro Nashville Police, a man approached Cantrell while she was on the phone and asked for her phone number. Cantrell rebuffed his advances twice. The third time, she told the man she would not be interested in exchanging numbers because she identifies as a lesbian.

That's when the man launched himself onto the hood of her car, kicked in her windshield and proceeded to drag her to the ground.

Witnesses on the scene said the man is new to the Nashville area and stays at the Rescue Mission.

Cantrell met an officer there a day later in hopes of finding the man, but said the officer did not offer to help track the suspect down.

antrell obtained video of the attack from the Kwik Sak, which has since gone viral on social media. In the comments, she has been criticized for her reaction — particularly when she is seen getting out of the vehicle to confront her attacker.

"I could see absolutely nothing out of my windshield," she said. "I was in shock and there was glass in my eyes from where all the glass hit us, so that's why I got out of the car."

Cantrell lives just minutes from the gas station but has since moved back into her parents' home in Hendersonville, where she feels safer.

A Christian missionary and father-of-four from China was fatally shot while visiting Missouri, just two days after he arrived in the US.

Xindong Hao was shot to death by 18-year-old Curtail Hudson, who was high on PCP and randomly shooting at people in the area on Wednesday, cops say.

In his high rampage Hudson got into a fight with a man and launched a shooting spree for two blocks around 7pm, fatally shooting Hao as he was walked by.

Witnesses said that Hudson shot Hao in the side then hit him several times with the butt of his shotgun.

Two other people were also wounded in Hudson's mad shooting spree, before he was arrested, including the man he fought with who suffered wounds in his neck and back.

MANHATTAN (WABC) -- Police are searching for a suspect who shoved a man onto the subway train tracks inside Grand Central Terminal Monday afternoon.

The victim was standing on the platform waiting for the 6 train around 4 p.m. when another man believed to be in his late 20s shoved him onto the tracks.

Authorities say it happened after the 47-year-old victim had inadvertently bumped into the suspect as he was walking up the stairs to the platform.

"I don't understand how these people, they wanna kill, you know," said the victim, Dai Kang.

"He watched me, and I'm scared, and he said 'do you want to die?' I said I don't want to see your face, get out of here. I turned my back," he said. That turned out to be a mistake. The man pushed Kang onto the tracks.

"I hear somebody say, 'please give me your hand, give me your hand'. So I look up, two guys, American citizen people, they helped me," said Kang. Other commuters had jumped into action to help pull him back to safety.

Two suspects appear to approach him from both sides as one grabs a bag of fried chicken and the other launches a blow to the back of Brian’s head.

He tries to shield himself as the suspects unleash a barrage of kicks and punches.

A man who claimed to be the victim’s boyfriend said Brian’s injuries were severe and included a scratch to his eyeball.

Aberdeen Police said thanks to the surveillance video from a nearby business, they have made three arrests in the case, including the two suspects in the video.

CANAL WINCHESTER, Ohio — A 78-year-old Italian immigrant who has lived in Ohio since the 1970’s says he and his wife are traumatized, after a pair of strangers entered their home under false pretenses only to hold the couple at gunpoint and demand money.

According to a news release issued late Monday, Liberati and his wife were at home at 4:00pm on Saturday when a pair of girls rang the doorbell and asked to come inside to use the bathroom.

Liberati says he obliged out of neighborly hospitality, but the two girls were in the bathroom for almost ten minutes. When they emerged, police say, the girls brandished handguns and demanded cash and jewelry.

Liberati says one girl pointed her gun right at his chest. The couple had very little cash in the house, and Liberati says the girls only got away with about $14 from a purse. They ran around the corner, where Liberati believes they jumped in a waiting vehicle and got away.

Liberati’s 12-year-old grandson was in the house during the robbery, and was unharmed.

Columbus Police are still investigating. The suspects were described as two black females teenagers, both of skinny build and about 5'7" tall with curly black hair. One is described with a tattoo on her left shoulder; the other was wearing a green jacket with writing on it.

MILWAUKEE -- A scuffle at Pizza Shuttle was caught on camera -- and the fight sent a manager to the hospital. A witness said based on what he saw, this could've been handled better by both parties.

"He was outnumbered at least like, five to one," said Jay Scott.

"Chairs were thrown and everything. It was crazy," said Scott.

Scott said he was among the handful of people inside who watched the situation escalate. While police continue to investigate, Scott said this all started with a group of girls arguing.

"They decided to go to the bathroom when there's only one, so I don't know if they were arguing about who's going to go first. They were arguing about that and that's when a manager came out and said everyone had to go," said Scott.

Scott said the girls were accompanied by males, and as the group was heading out the door, Scott said he saw an employee put their hands on one of the males.

"The manager like, put his hands on, trying to forcefully remove him out of the establishment," said Scott.

Police are looking into the involvement of three men -- ages 19 and 20, and between the ages of 25 and 30.

FOX6 News reached out to Pizza Shuttle officials for comment, and they could only say a manager was hurt so badly that employee had to be taken to the hospital and will be off work for the rest of the week.

Based on what he saw, Scott said he feels this situation could've been handled differently by both parties.

"This could've been avoided with cooperation," said Scott.

Newlywed Married Couple robbed at Gunpoint by Gang of 6 - Reporters Omit Facts - Colin Flaherty reviews and gives commentary on news with headlines "Home surveillance cameras capture Dallas couple being robbed at gunpoint"

Dallas police took six teens into custody for committing at least four robberies Sunday morning -- including robbing a couple at gunpoint who were out walking their dog.

The couple was out walking their dog just after midnight Sunday morning near the Bishop Arts District. A neighbor’s surveillance camera captured this video of three boys approaching them with guns drawn, yelling, “Give me your wallet! Give me your phone!”

Another neighbor’s surveillance camera captured audio, on which you hear the husband, Garrett Scharton, saying, “Take whatever you want,” while his wife, Caroline, screams.

Three boys, with at least two guns drawn, knocked off Garrett's glasses as he jumped on top of his wife to protect her from any potential injury. The only thing of value that they had on them was an iPhone, which they handed over.

Once the group gets back in the car and leaves, Dixie runs to their side. Within about an hour, Mesquite police say they caught up with the suspect vehicle and got into a short chase with the suspects before arresting the minors and turning them back over to Dallas police.

"I thought in that moment I was going to lose everything I care about so, yeah, that's what I'm feeling,” said Scharton.

On Saturday, noted Twin Cities entertainer T. Mychael Rambo was carjacked, pistol-whipped and left on a St. Paul street with a concussion after giving a lift to five teenagers. He said he feels pity, not rage, for his attackers.

Last weekend, he was carjacked, pistol-whipped and left bloodied in the street by a group of young men. Doctors diagnosed a concussion and put six stitches in his head.

St. Paul police said the case remains under investigation. The suspects were described as young men between the ages of 14 and 18.

Rambo said he had been to the festival and was driving down University Avenue when five young men — teenagers he had never met — shouted to him at a stoplight near Lexington Avenue: “Hey, Unc, won’t you give us a lift to the next train station?”

He agreed and they piled into his vehicle, four in the back, one in the front.

“I took them to the intersection they were asking for,” he said. “When we got there, one of the boys asked me to take them to another block — that they were going somewhere else in the neighborhood. When I turned down the residential street, the fellow who had been giving me directions put a gun to the base of my head and told me to give up everything I had.

“He hit me with the barrel of the gun. … He fired a set of directions at me, which I didn’t respond to, because I was a bit in shock. When he moved the butt of the gun, I pushed my foot on the brake ... I was able to get my seat belt off, the car door opened and I ejected myself from the vehicle.

“When I was getting up off the ground, someone in the vehicle managed to stop it. The guy with the gun came out and put it to my temple and told me he would blow my brains out. One of the boys came running over, rifled through my pockets, took the contents and ran back to the car and drove off. They left me there, standing in the middle of the street, bleeding, totally disoriented and distressed.”

In the meantime, he’s savoring the outpouring of support from the community. A neighbor stopped by during the interview to ask after his health. Rambo has taken a philosophical approach to the incident, invoking Martin Luther King Jr., who dreamed of creating a “beloved community.”

While the attack was “disheartening, I’m not discouraged,” said Rambo, whose longtime passion is helping young people through mentorships, teaching and performance, including a juvenile offender program offered by Hennepin County.

“Our children, with technology, are living very isolated lives,” he continued. “And they’re seeing that people in high places, people who have power, don’t reap consequences for their behavior. [But] the more people are able to connect to each other, to create community, the more we can see others and have some empathy. Then we will [all] be better off.”

NORTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Investigators are reviewing surveillance video along North Broad Street after a group of about 300 teenagers crowded the area Sunday night.

It's not clear why the large group descended onto Broad Street at around 7:30 p.m.

Police are looking to identify a small fraction of the kids; those who were fighting and damaging property inside a Wendy's fast-food restaurant near the Liacouras Center and one other business, flipping over tables and chairs.

Commissioner Ross says two teens were hurt in the fights that broke out and a small portion of the crowd began throwing rocks towards police officers.

"Someone threw a rock that shattered the rear window of our police vehicle," said Ross.
Most of the teens did not participate in any criminal activity, and Broad Street was cleared by 10 p.m.

A slew of vicious, “flash mob”-style attacks at Temple University left at least six students beaten and bloodied over the weekend, along with a cop and a police horse.
More than 150 teens, spread out in groups of 20 or 30, descended upon the campus at around 8:30 p.m. Friday — wreaking havoc for nearly two hours before eventually dispersing, according to NBC 10.

Temple spokesman Ray Betzner told the television station that the mob had been playing a “cat-and-mouse game” with officers throughout the night as they assaulted people who were walking around campus.

The horde seemed to be targeting people at random during the attacks — pummeling them, destroying their personal items and even robbing them in some instances.

In one incident, a female student named Christina Laulette was beaten to a bloody pulp and hospitalized after a group of youths ganged up on her and two others.

“Her and her 2 male friends where badly beaten by a group of 30-40 black teenagers on their way home from the Temple football game,” her father, Joe Lauletta, recalled in a Facebook post on Saturday night.

“These sick animals held her down and kicked and stomped on her repeatedly,” he seethed. “Every part of her body is badly bruised. It makes me cry just thinking about it.”
