On August 3rd, a gang of 12 Somali Muslim teens and young men attacked and robbed a man near Target Field in Minneapolis. Police have arrested more than a dozen gang members, some as young as 13, accused of preying on drunk people and robbing them of their cellphones and valuables, viciously beating, stomping on and stripping a victim before hurling a potted plant at him and riding over him with a bicycle.
Daily Mail (h/t Grace J) The graphic recording shows a gaggle of about 12 teenage thugs and young men surround two men playing a game of dice on the sidewalk. A similar attack targeting drunk people took place on August 29, leaving a victim unconscious,
About 40 seconds into the video, one of the ruffians appears to snatch a man’s cellphone. The victim shows resistance, prompting one of the attackers to throw the first punch. From there, the violence quickly and dramatically escalates.
After going through his pockets, the perpetrators proceed to repeatedly punch the victim, kick him in the head and stomp on him. While the man is lying supine on the ground, several of the assailants jump on him, and one of them body-slams the man.
The footage shows the attackers ripping the victim’s shoes and pants off, and trying to remove his boxer shorts. The victim is seen in the video cowering and trying to protect his head with his hands from brutal blows raining down on him.
