The attack occurred on June 14, when the victim was shopping at a Food Mart located at 7134 Oakwood Glen Blvd. He was waiting to buy his items when the group of teenagers cut him in line. “I looked over and said, ‘There’s a line for a reason,'” the shopper recalled. A verbal altercation ensued, with the man saying the group mocked him for his hair and clothing.

After the man paid for his purchases, the group followed him into the parking lot, where they attacked him and took turns punching and kicking him. Video shows that the man never fought back, and he later said he made the decision to just take the beating. “I don’t know what else I could do,” he added. “The fifth one at the end came out of the store after purchasing goods and came up to me and kicked me in the face and said, ‘Black lives matter, [expletive].'”

The victim was left with a swollen lip, bruising, and a cut near his eye, and police later said he refused medical treatment. Both the victim and his girlfriend asked that their names not be used due to fears that the group of teenagers would seek revenge on them.

“I really hope they’re caught before someone else gets hurt,” his girlfriend said. “I hope that the people take this and don’t say, ‘It’s white against black.’ I don’t want this to be the statement. I want it to be, ‘Here’s a man who was checking out and stood up for himself, and he was targeted for that.'”
