Young people attacked elderly man in park, then made one terrible mistake!

According to the police officials, the assault of a 64-year-old man was live-streamed on Facebook by one of the alleged assailants. A group of young people consisting of three males and one female approached a man as he sat on a bench reading a book. They asked the man where they could exchange money before one of them put a gun to his head, demanding money and his possessions. Another stabbed him in the lower back, and a third sprayed him with Mace.

The man was stabbed once more in the arm before the suspects fled with his iPhone, North Face backpack, and $60 in cash. One of the suspects, 18-year-old Zannay, reportedly admitted to police that she was with the group and live-streamed the attack on Facebook with her cellphone. “Here’s a man sitting on a bench, reading a book in the park,” Councilwoman Clarke said.

“To think that it was actually planned and recorded to be publicized is just beyond understanding. It’s outrageous.” “What in the world would inspire a person to take part in such an assault and want other people to share it?,” she said, “It’s sick.”

The other two suspects, Laws and Dakei, were charged with attempted first-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, armed robbery, theft, reckless endangerment and dangerous weapon with intent to injure, according to WBAL TV.  The group is reportedly responsible for other robberies in the area. Two other suspects in the attack have yet to be confirmed by police.
