"Teens" commit five brutal mob attacks against Red Hot Chili Pepper concert goers


Update: CofCC co-webmaster Kyle Rogers interviewed the reporter at the Newark Star-Ledger. He says that he knew the race of the perpetrators and censored it on purpose.

Five people were savagely attacked by “teens” as they were leaving the Prudential Plaza Center in New Jersey. Local police say the attacks were motivated by a desire to commit violence. Police have video of the attackers, but the local media is not reporting any details from the video. The victims were attending a concert for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The band has a mostly white fan base.

A roving band of teenagers assaulted five people as they left a sold-out concert at Newark’s Prudential Center Saturday night, leaving one man unconscious and another with a fractured eye socket during a two-minute crime spree, according to police officials and incident reports.

The attacks happened as nearly 20,000 guests departed from a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert and marked only the second major reported crime at the arena since it opened in 2007, officials said.

When it was all over, three teenagers and two adults had been beaten and robbed along Broad Street between Market and Lafayette Streets, according to the police reports. One victim, a 23-year-old Pennsylvania man, suffered a fractured eye socket and needed 12 stitches to close wounds to his lip and eyebrow, the reports said.

The same group attacked a father and son from Morris County, stealing their cell phones and the older man’s wallet. The teens cornered the 14-year-old boy and repeatedly punched and kicked him, the reports said. A cab driver and parking attendant intervened and helped the boy, who then discovered his father unconscious and bleeding nearby, according to the reports.

The same group of thieves, described by Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio as a band of 10 or 15 “thugs,” assaulted and robbed two Livingston teenagers, according to the reports.

“It’s so unfortunate that this one group of kids can cause something like this to happen,” DeMaio said. “It’s sad.”
