It wasn’t unprovoked, though. The whites told the juveniles to “move along” in the street.
Talk about disrespect.
A couple in California taking out the trash over the weekend ended up victims of a “very brutal” attack that was caught on camera, according to officials.
The Stockton Police Department said on Facebook the incident happened Sunday around 11:30 p.m. when the group of unknown assailants attacked the couple in the 900 block of Henry Long Drive in the Weston Ranch area of the city.
Video released by the department shows a woman being kicked and punched around her head and face area multiple times.
“If you look at the video, there’s about four to five people, both males and females,” Stockton Police spokesman Joe Silva told FOX40. “And we believe that they possibly are known to that neighborhood.”
The couple, who have asked to not be identified, said the confrontation started after they asked a group of teenagers to move along while they were taking out the trash.
The woman, who now has two black eyes, said the attack began when one of the men in the group sucker punched her. Stockton police said she was treated at a local hospital for her injuries and released after the attack.
Police said in the surveillance video, there appeared to be 4 to 5 male and female suspects.
“The suspects are believed to be known to the area,” Stockton police said. “During the assault, the group of suspects also vandalized the victim’s vehicle.”
