Two teens arrested after stomping classmate's head in violent brawl

 February 6, 2024

New York City crime, thanks mostly to the lenient prosecutors elected for unknown reasons, is spiraling out of control by the day.

According to the Daily Mail, the latest evidence of the crime epidemic in what used to be a desirable city involved two violent teenagers who reportedly stomped on a classmate's head in what was described as a "vicious attack."

The brawl involving the suspects occurred at Martin van Buren High School in Queens.

The Mail noted:

In shocking footage of the brawl, released by the District Attorney, the victim is pushed down the stairs and slammed into a door before a group of boys descend on him.

District Attorney Melinda Katz released a statement on the brawl, which caught national attention given the violence involved.

"The brutality was chilling under any circumstance, but that it occurred in what parents should be able to assume is a safe place for their children is as unsettling as the violence captured on video," her statement read.

It was noted that four other suspects were involved in the deadly attack, but they haven't been located as of this writing.

Katz continued, "Both defendants, along with four others who have not yet been apprehended, kicked, stomped and punched the victim multiple times in the head and body while the victim was in a prone position on the floor."

The two teens who stomped on the victim's head were also stabbed in the brawl. One was stabbed in the abdomen and the other in the shoulder, but neither suspect sustained life-threatening injuries.

The outlet noted:

When police officers arrived at the school they grabbed the victim, who was suspected of stabbing the two boys, and took him to the 105th Precinct, according to New York Daily News.

But the victim claimed self-defense and showed authorities the social media video of the attack that supported his claim.

The two suspects who have been arrested could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted and handed the maximum sentence.

Many across social media doubted that would happen, given that NYC district attorneys seem to look the other way in many cases of violent crime.

The only way this disturbing trend will begin to turn the other way is if violent criminals are made examples of in a court of law.
