Group Of Young People att*ck Elderly Man In Park, Then Make One Massive Mistake

The as*ault of a 64-year-old man in a Baltimore, Maryland, park was live-streamed on Facebook by one of the alleged assailants, according to police.

A group of young people consisting of three males and one female approached a man as he sat on a bench reading a book in Wyman Park Dell near the Johns Hopkins University and the Baltimore Museum of Art, The Baltimore Sun reports. They asked the man where they could exchange money before one of them put a g*n to his head, demanding money and his possessions. Another st*bbed him in the lower back, and a third sprayed him with Mace.

The man was st*bbed once more in the arm before the susp*cts fled with his iPhone, North Face backpack, and $60 in cash.

Zannay Laws, 18, admitted to police that she was with the group and live-streamed the att*ck on Facebook with her cellphone.

“Here’s a man sitting on a bench, reading a book in the park,” City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke said. “To think that it was actually planned and recorded to be publicized is just beyond understanding. It’s outr*geous.”

“What in the world would inspire a person to take part in such an as*ault and want other people to share it?,” she said, “It’s sick.”

Laws and Dakei Perry, also 18, were charged with attempted first-degree m**der, first- and second-degree as*ault, armed r*bbery, theft, reckless endangerment and dangerous w*apon with intent to injure, according to WBAL TV.

The group is reportedly responsible for other r*bberies in the area.

Perry was recently charged in a r*bbery involving a pizza delivery driver who was choked until she nearly lost consciousness, according to The Baltimore Sun.

A tip from a citizen helped lead police to the susp*cts, and Facebook posts were also helpful to the investigation.

“cr*minals do some crazy things,” police spokesman T.J. Smith said. “They record themselves committing cr*mes, and we thank them for it. We encourage the cr*minals to continue to record your acts, and encourage citizens to continue to send us information when you find the cr*minal wrongdoing on camera and on social media.”

Two other susp*cts in the att*ck have yet to be confirmed by police.
