A group of about 10 black Brooklyn, New York youths ages 12 to 18, allegedly attacked a white couple for honking at them as they walked along a cross walk, according to the New York Daily News.

The attack took place at around 7 p.m. on October 14, as the kids crossed a wide, heavily traveled street outside the Kings Plaza Mall, a major shopping plaza in Brooklyn. Ronald Russo, 30 and his wife, Alanna were in their vehicle when the light turned green. The kids reportedly lackadaisically strolled across the street even though the light had turned for the cars to proceed. When Russo allegedly honked his horn for the kids to put some pep into their step, all heck broke loose.

According to the criminal complaint, the kids and Russo exchanged some incendiary words, then the youths reportedly began kicking at his car. When Russo got out of his vehicle to check on the car damage made by the kicks, he was dragged to the ground. The tweens and teens then began allegedly assaulting the man, kicking and punching him about his torso and head.

When Alanna attempted to summon police with her cell phone, a 12-year-old girl reportedly yanked her by the hair and flung her to the ground, where she slammed her head into the concrete surface.

After the attack, the youths scattered, but police caught two suspects — Kashawn Kirton and Daehrell Finch — at a nearby Lowe’s store parking lot, not long after the attack occurred. Authorities also arrested the 12-year-old girl who allegedly attacked Alanna and another 14-year-old accomplice.

Kirton, 18, who has no arrest record, was charged with gang assault, harassment and menacing — all hate crimes — and was released on a $50,000 bond. The young man, who claims he has white relatives and college schoolmates, told the New York Daily News, he would never have taken part in such violence. Kirton contends he was arrested because he was wearing an outfit that was similar to one of the attackers.

Seventeen-year-old Finch, was charged with gang assault, assault, menacing and harassment, but no hate-crime charges have been filed against him. Finch, who has an extensive arrest record, is being held at a jail in lieu of his $75,000 bail.

Police are still searching for the other alleged attackers.

Meanwhile Russo suffered a fractured nose, a broken septum, a blood clot and abrasions to his shoulder.  He was treated at a hospital, then released.  The victim’s iPhone was also reportedly stolen during the fracas.  Alanna sustained a black eye, bleeding and had difficulty breathing but refused medical treatment.

Police are still searching for six other assailants.
