NEW YORK CITY (WLNE) – Video of a violent attack on a 15-year-old girl has prompted NYPD to ask for help from the public as they search for the perpetrators. The surveillance video shows a group of teens brutally beating and robbing the girl on a Brooklyn street earlier this week.
NYPD’s Brooklyn North precinct posted surveillance video on Twitter showing a group of teens attacking the girl as she tries to protect herself after being thrown to the ground. The suspects can be seen repeatedly kicking, stomping, and punching the girl.
