A man suffered head injuries and a left eye socket injury from being savagely beaten by a mob of teenagers outside the Washington Hilton.
On Wednesday, the Washington DC Police Department released video of a tourist who was savagely beaten early this month by a mob of teenagers—some apparently as young as 13 and 14—as he and another man were walking toward the entrance of the Washington Hilton.
According to NBC Washington, it appears the mob targeted the man for some unknown reason.
A witness said he and the man were walking toward the hotel about 1 a.m. July 14 when someone in a group of teens pointed at the man and screamed, “That’s him,” according to the police report.
After a brief exchange of words, the man was attacked by about 10 girls and boys believed to be 13-14 years old, according to the police report. [Emphasis added.]
“The man suffered head injuries and a left eye socket injury,” reported NBC Washington. “The witness suffered a swollen left eye. They were treated at a local hospital.”
MPD seeks the public's assistance in identifying suspects in reference to an Aggravated Assault offense that occurred on 7/14/19 in the 1900 blk of Connecticut Avenue, NW.
