RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – There is a group of teenagers going around Richmond and knocking out people on the streets, Richmond Police Det. W. Cutshall said. The teens then steal whatever they want from the victim.
“It’s two to three, sometimes four male juveniles knocking pedestrians or bicyclists to the ground,” Det. Cutshall said. “When they knock them to the ground, they begin punching them and kicking them and taking whatever they have in their possession.”
Say, would this outbreak of the “knockout game” (which is really robbery coupled with assault with intent) involve young black thugs attacking white people?
Why, yes. Yes, it would:
“The suspects are pretty much the same description, they are described usually as black males between the ages of 14 and 16. They are 5? 8?, thin and usually have short hair,” he said. “Every one of the victims so far has been a white male, approximately 18 – 21 years of age.”
Good thing none of the victims were armed. Soomebody might have gotten hurt.
