Police: NYC Mob Viciously Beats 15-Year-Old Boy, Steals His Sneakers

A mob of young individuals in New York City viciously attacked a 15-year-old boy before one of the individuals stole the teen’s sneakers and fled the scene.

According to the New York Police Department (NYPD), the mob jumped the teen at approximately 2:50 p.m. Monday at the southeast corner of Amsterdam Avenue and West 188 Street in upper Manhattan.

The teen’s mother told police that during the assault, the gang forcibly removed property from the victim, including an iPhone, wallet, $20, and an ID card.

During the attack, which was recorded by a bystander, the mob of young individuals is seen brutally punching and kicking the helpless victim. The video was uploaded to Instagram but has since been deleted, according to the New York Daily News.

One of the individuals is then seen stealing the boy’s sneakers before the mob scurried from the scene into a parked vehicle, the New York Post reported.

“Damn, they’re taking his shoes, bro,” said the man filming the attack. After the gang left, a bystander walking is seen checking the victim.
