Brooklyn residents are taking a stand against the so-called “knockout game,” a violent trend in which youths sucker-punch unsuspecting strangers for kicks.
Another “knockout game” incident was suspected in an attack Wednesday in the Bronx, according to a published report.
Police have arrested a 13-year-old boy in connection with the attack of a 12-year-old Brooklyn boy who said he was a victim of the “Knockout Game.”
Four suspects were being held Saturday morning in a string of violent attacks in Brooklyn, known as the “knockout game.”
Republican Assemblyman Jim Tedisco of Schenectady said Thursday that his bill would make the violent game a gang assault with a sentence of up to 25 years. Youths would be charged as adults.
