BROOKLYN (PIX11)– A couple was viciously attacked on Monday by a group of black youths in Brooklyn.
The incident took place at an intersection near the Kings Plaza Shopping Center around 7 p.m.
Police say the group of 10 kids including one girl, ranging in ages 12 to 18, surrounded the white couple’s car in Brooklyn. They senselessly beat the husband and yanked the wife to the ground by her hair.
According to authorities the group was yelling racial slurs at the two including “get those crackers!” and “get that white whore!”
The victims of the incident are Ronald Russo and his wife Alanna.
The confrontation began when the group was crossing Avenue U at East 58th Street. The couple says the kids were in the middle of the intersection while they had a green light. Russo honked his horn at the group to move. They started kicking his car. When Russo got out to see if there was damage, that’s when they attacked.
Russo suffered a fractured nose, broken septum, a blood clot and a shoulder injury. His wife got a black eye and had trouble breathing.
Three teenagers and the young girl of the group were arrested at a nearby Lowe’s a few minutes after the attack.
Cops are searching for six more suspects.
The couple was treated for their injuries and both are expected to be okay.
