CBS2 Exclusive: Teens Ambush Woman, Pull Gun In Violent Brooklyn Robbery

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) –Police are looking for a group of teens who have terrorized a Brooklyn neighborhood.

As CBS2’s Valerie Castro exclusively reported Thursday night, surveillance video shows a group of teenage boys and girls working together to attack an unsuspecting woman walking alone.

A woman was targeted and attacked under the darkness of a tree on a Bushwick sidewalk.

Police sources said it was a group of teens who terrorized their victim, and threatened her with a gun.

“It’s disgusting, simply disgusting,” Evett Villafane said.

Her network of surveillance cameras caught the mugging on Sept. 5 around 11:30 at night on Evergreen Avenue.

The video shows a group of what appears to be teenagers, some walking, others riding bikes and scooters, make their way up the street.

Another angle shows the teens hiding behind a white van. On the sidewalk, a young woman walks by alone, carrying a bag and looking down at her phone.

“They waited for her and they mugged her,” Villafane said.

Police sources said the 26-year-old victim was pushed to the ground, kicked, and punched.

One attacker pulled out a gun and pointed it at her while the others took her cell phone and wallet with credit cards and cash.

The video shows the suspects leaving, and the victim looking for help.

Villafane heard the commotion and called the police.

“She was scared. She was scared, she was shaking, I felt sorry for her,” she said.

The victim was so scared that she’s since posted a letter in her building warning neighbors of the violent sneak attack.

In it she wrote, “They threatened to shoot me even after I willingly told them to take everything I had on me, and just please not hurt me.”

“They obviously waited for an easy target,” Villafane said.

She’s also sure someone will recognize the teens.

“As a mother you know the way your child walks, you know their attitude, you know what they were wearing that day, so I’m hoping that someone sees them,” she said.

In her note the victim urged neighbors to be aware of their surroundings, not walk alone at night, and to put their safety first.

Police have been looking into whether the group of teens is responsible for other crimes in the area.

    I wonder who the victim voted for? Odumbass and the New York Commie?

    1. Contra Ventus says:

      If anyone watches an NFL game these days, they might as well vote for Obama and Hillary.

  2. Bill Williams says:

    This is why members of the Normal-American Community would rather live in our cars than within 500 miles of your NYC dump.

    1. Chris says:

      So, no one has ever been mugged where you live? What pristine city do you live in? Tell me, so that I can return the favor to you.

      1. Jason Argon says:

        I am not aware of anyone ever getting mugged in my community since I have lived here (over 5 years). I know the 25 years with no murders streak ended a couple of years ago when a guy killed his wife with a kitchen knife. Everyone in my neighborhood is an avid shooter and owns guns. We often get together on weekends and go shooting together. I am not going to tell you where I live because the last thing we need is a bunch of liberal idiots moving in and ruining it.

        1. Bill Williams says:

          Right on, Jason. No reason to disclose to defective city-inmate locusts where the next strippable wheat field is located.

      2. Kevin Lee says:

        There are lots of communities where muggings are pretty much unheard of. I live in one of them. A little petty theft, an occasional car theft, one convenience store robbery about 5 or 10 years ago, but violent offenders are almost non-existent. So what kind of sh!thole do you live in where muggings are routine?

      3. Bill Williams says:

        In 21 years living in my small Northwest town, I’ve never even met any who’s been mugged, robbed, burglarized or assaulted in any way. Of course, we’re peaceful and many of us carry guns, so bad guys know they’re likely to die if they break into our homes or assault our people.

        But, it rains buckets here every single days, so anybody living east of Colorado is well advised to stay where you are. Stay, city inmates, STAY!

      Or for the watermelon..

  4. Tomas Cora says:

    After eight years of Obama a women was, the 500th murder in Chicago, police ambushed, riots and looting…………

  5. Cory Raymer says:

    Animals like that need to be shot on sight.

    1. Vespi Die says:

      Where I live, animals like that would be shot on sight.

  6. Louis Latour says:

    When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns. They know that there is close to zero chance of effective resistance.

  7. c p says:

    Be on the lookout for teens. We need to be vary wary of everyone aged 12 to 20. Beware of everyone who may be a teenager.

  8. John Sorger says:

    “Teens” is media Newspeak for a pack of rampaging violent nígger thugs.

  9. Ima says:

    My hope is that the victim was an ignorant, regressive liberal who supports the various, phony BLM memes. If so, I applaud the thugs for, possibly, opening her eyes.

    1. Keizan Li says:

      If the victim was a liberal, she probably believed that she deserved it because of her white privilege. Just her small contribution to the reparations that these “teens” feel entitled to.

  10. I love how the “group of teens” run like a pack of pu$$ies after mugging a defenseless woman.

  11. todd bops says:

    what happens when hipsters move to the ghetto

  12. Joe Aguilar says:

    Gee…Ni@@ers.

    Coming soon to a neighborhood near you, or, (more likely if Hillary is elected) in a subsidized home right next door to, you!

  13. Jack Inmanz says:

    We call them “teens” now.

  14. kenramsey says:

    The victim looks like a young white hipster chick. Probably came up in the suburbs somewhere and moved into the urban hipness of gentrified Brooklyn. Now she’s discovering why her parents or grandparents took up white flight. Probably to her shock.

    1. If that’s true (and believe me I’m in no way trying to say this woman got what she deserved) than perhaps she might be re-evaluating her decision to ignore the moans of protest from her family and friends who told her not to move there, but instead moved anyway because it’s “gentrified” and “up and coming”. She undoubtedly knows “how to handle herself” and admires the minorities “cultural attributes” and the grittiness of the neighborhood. Sigh, young and foolish.

      1. Sean says:

        Vibrant culture.

  15. capoprimo says:

    Before I opened the article, I knew it was Obama’s boys, somehow they’re the ones who seem to think themselves of getting anything they want and don’t have to work for it!

  16. Jaques Jones says:

    Just shoot the teens onsite nobody will care. They have nothing else to do and will amount to nothing, the carbon footprint they leave is foul, when they are recycled into the earth they will thrive.

    1. Josh Davis says:

      Level of difficulty:
      This took place in New York where guns are just this side of impossible for a law abiding citizen interested in protecting themselves to get. You’ll notice that the thuglings in the video are fearless mostly because of that factor… Very little chance of immediate retaliation.

  17. Those poor impressionable children must have learned this from those NYC motorcycle cops who last year ripped the door off that minivan and pulled out the father so they could beat him in the street.

  18. 3X69 says:

    Teens, eh? Don’t even need to see the video to know that it is a bunch of pavement “teens”.

  19. Ralph DeRose says:

    If anyone on this board who votes for Hillobama, you deserve these trashy thugs!!

  20. therefillman says:

    Happy that at least this time it wasn’t those damn Amish thugs who have been doing stuff like this forever!!!

  21. tngilmer says:

    These sweet young children cannot help it. They are victims too of Tea Party and Republican white racism. /sarc off

    1. Glug M. Bog says:

      Angry Negros make me smell like fish

  22. Mother Teresa

    “The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself,”

    “And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?”

    1. Alejandro says:

      Planned Parenthood is merely pre-natal crime control.

  23. Mike Arvand says:

    Always obamas kids, and always in packs.

    You just can’t domesticate some of the saharan critters.

  24. Mike Arvand says:

    As usual, what’s not mentioned in the article says more than what is.

    More of obamas kids on the loose.

  25. jeff says:

    She was arrogantly asserting her white privilege to walk the public streets. They simply administered a forceful lesson in social justice.

  26. Armed and ready says:

    Always carry a loaded gun with you when walking anywhere in NY

  27. Smerby says:

    Rediculus.

  28. Tahoe Guy says:

    To Liberal America: You an keep these crapholes you created. Make sure you don’t move!!! Please stop reproducing!

  29. Mark Matis says:

    How did I know the melanin content of the “teens”” skin before even clicking on the link?

  30. Tiede says:

    Eventually they will encroach on someone else’s turf and that will be the end of them.

  31. fb says:

    Now you see why MANY people KNOW BLM is a JOKE.

  32. wrd9 says:

    This is why whites and decent law abiding minorities need to vote for Trump. This type of behavior is going to be normalized with a Clinton presidency just as it’s been ignored under Obozo. The question is, do we want to be a law abiding country again or a 3rd world cesspool like most of the countries in Latin America or Africa?

  33. jj says:

    Colin Kaepernick should knell for this.

  34. Bill Kilgore says:

    Let’s all sing, “my kinda town Chicago is….”. Oops, wrong city. Sorry, both cities “look alike” to me.

  35. pooh says:

    Obama will send in officials to investigate the police.

  36. Uncle Peter says:

    Bushwick, East New York, Brownsville and Bedford-Stuyvesant were once the prospering jewels of New York City. These neighborhoods embodied the American Dream. The race riots of the 60’s and 70’s totally destroyed these neighborhoods and more importantly, the commercial infrastructure – bakeries, restaurants, dry-cleaners. This contributed to the mass exodus of the stable working-class citizens for the suburbs.

    These citizens were replaced by broken families, non-skilled unemployed laborers, drug dealers, common criminals. Today, despite the attempt at gentrification, you take your life in your hands when you go on the streets…especially when it is dark.

    I thank God every day that I was able to move from Brooklyn while it was still a nice place to live and raise a family.

    1. Bill Kilgore says:

      Many American feel the same way you do. We all remember the clean, safe and thriving cities and neighborhoods built by our European ancestors. Kids playing safely in the alleys well after dark on warm summer nights; unlocked doors and windows; well-kept properties, rental or otherwise; the beat cop walking the streets talking to the kids. The list goes on. Take a ride through those same neighborhoods now (if you dare) and see what African and Latin cultures have done to them. Pathetic.

  37. IThink says:

    This kind of thing shouldn’t surprise anyone. After decades of progressive liberals preaching wealth redistribution combined with conditioned entitlement from social welfare programs people are starting to ask themselves why they need the government middle man to give them what they want when they can just take it themselves.

  38. Dr3yec says:

    Cops are not the problem the people in this video are the problem. Nasty parasites.

  39. Sam Hensley says:

    What exactly do you expect from a bunch of n*ggers?

  40. R. Johnson says:

    I don’t hear Obama claiming that any of these “teens” could have been his son.

    1. Liberal democrat cities just keep getting better and better.

      There’s just not enough abortion going on out thee. It’s the one thing obama has failed to get done. I mean, when you rally need a destroyer, he’s nowhere to be found!

  41. jammeriz says:

    Anyone surprised???

  42. Lukuj says:

    Somehow this I’ll be made the fault of the victim. Police, or white privileges

  43. The overriding code when race isn’t mentioned? Inevitable.

  44. Higgz Bozzen says:

    surprise surprise nig nogs committing crime and robbing more white people,,, shocker!!! I don’t think America has a gun problem,,, we have a dindu problem…

  45. Bryan Mason says:

    There’s that media code word again…a group of “teens”.

  46. Jeffrey Shultz says:

    “Teens”? We all know what euphemism that means.

  47. I’m shocked this happened in Bushwick. It’s an up and coming area that all the hipsters moving in insist is safe and so do the real estate agents trying to get unsuspecting people to move it. It’s Bushwick, not filled with drug dealers and crime. No way, I’m totally shocked.
