Group of 10 Black Youths Attack White Couple in Apparent Racial Assault

A group of 10 young black individuals in Brooklyn bloodied a white couple in an apparent racial assault on Monday, authorities said.

Ronald Russo, 30, and his wife, Alana Russo, 30, were possibly the victims of a racial assault earlier this week when they were beat by a group of 10 black youths — including a 12-year-old girl — after they honked their horn to signal the group to move so they could proceed through a green light, NYPD Lieutenant John Grimpel told TheBlaze.

After Ronald honked his horn the upset youths began kicking his car. When Russo got out to examine the damage, he was thrown to the ground, punched and kicked throughout his body — including his head. He suffered numerous injuries, including a blood clot, abrasions to his shoulder, a fractured nose and a broken septum, according to the New York Daily News.

His wife, Alana, was also ripped from the car while she attempted to dial 911. Her head was slammed on the concrete and she suffered a black eye, bleeding and had difficulty breathing, prosecutors said, according to the New York Daily News.

“They struck the victims multiple times — heads, body, legs,” Grimpel said. “The female they struck her in the face. Also took an iPhone.”

During the attack, racial insults were hurled at the couple

“Get those crackers!” some of the youths shouted, court papers reportedly said. “Get that white whore!”

“White motherf—-r!” others reportedly shouted.

After the attack, the kids left the scene, but two teens — Kashawn Kirton and Daehrell Finch — were arrested minutes later. Authorities also arrested the 12-year-old girl and 14-year-old boy for assault and robbery.

Kirton, however, denied the charges to the New York Daily News, saying he was only arrested because he was wearing the same shirt as one of the attackers.

“I have relatives who are white. Cousins and stuff,” he added. “My school is mainly white. More than half my friends are white. I wouldn’t use words like that.”

Kirton, who has no prior arrests, is charged with numerous crimes, including gang assault and harassment. He was reportedly released on $50,000 bond.

“Once a person is arrested and whether they are determined guilty or not guilty depends on the criminal justice system,” Grimpel said, responding to Kirton’s claim he is not-guilty.

17-year-old Finch was charged with gang assault, assault, menacing and harassment, but no hate crime charges. He is reportedly being held on $75,000 bond.

Authorities are reportedly looking for six more individuals they believe took part in the crime.

Um everyone knows you can only be racist if you're white.

It is hard to say if this was motivated purely by the color of some one's skin or if these kids are just a group of horrible people who would have done this to any one who dared to get in their way.

There is so much wrong here..............

So you know these people and you were there, right?

We haven't a clue what their true motive was.  Other than what we have read.

Regardless of any racial motive, or otherwise, I hope these little shits find themselves looking out from behind bars.

I don't know how it works, but it sounds like they attacked the couple to get back at them, not purely because they were white. But the attackers brought race into the mix, so I don't know. It is totally wrong and scary how violent youth are now.

I agree with you. According to the story, the attackers became angry after he honked his horn at them, and when he got out to check for damage to his vehicle, he was attacked. It sounds like a bad situation that got worse, and it should never have happened.
