A group of girls attacked an elderly man and then ran off laughing.
Opposing Views reported that the youngsters did not realize they had to face consequences for their cruel actions.
A man from Syracuse, New York, was attacked by two teenage girls on October 19, 2017.
A bystander recorded the video of the two girls hitting 62-year-old Gary Martin. He then shared the video on social media.
The elderly man told the police that he politely asked a group of teens who were in his front yard to move. He was trying to sell his car.
However, instead of moving, two of them assaulted him.
The video shows four girls on the lawn with Martin, who is holding his cane. He bends close to one of the girls.
The girl with a red tank top and jeans, whom he appears to be speaking with, hits him in the face.
She then runs away, while he follows her into the street, as do the other girls. One of the girls the grabs the senior citizen and spins him around in the street, causing his hat to fall off.
Martin then continues to chase after the girl who slapped him, with his cane raised in the air. Unfortunately, he falls to the ground.
He gets back up and runs down the street after the girls, but is unable to catch up to them.
People witnessing the incident can be heard laughing in the video.
The elderly man said he suffered a bruised eye after he was punched twice by two teenage girls.
The two teenage girls, aged 14 and 15, were arrested and charged with third-degree assault.
The mother of one of the girls sent her apologies to Martin and said that her daughter’s behavior was uncalled for. The girl will accept responsibility for her actions and whatever consequences are handed down, according to the mother.
The video shot on a cellphone was shared on Facebook and went viral on social media. It has garnered more than 1,000,000 views.
