EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn (PIX11) — A group of seven male individuals attacked a 14-year-old boy inside a subway station in Brooklyn, police said Tuesday.

Around 3:57 p.m. on Mar. 14, a boy was approached by the group on the mezzanine of the Van Siclen Avenue station and was punched multiple times on the head and body, video of the attack showed. The teen was on his way home from school, his mom said.

The victim didn’t know the group who attacked him, his mom said. He travels that route home from school all the time and has never had problems before.

The suspects fled the station. The teen was left with swelling and bruising on his body, according to authorities. He called his mom after the attack.

“He said ‘mommy, I was scared for my life.’ You know, I was crying when he told me,” the mom said.

One attacker recorded the whole thing. Video was posted to social media and seen by thousands. A classmate of the victim found it on Snapchat and sent it to the injured teen.

Police are seeking help in identifying and finding the suspects.
