Black youths beat a young couple walking in Springfield, Missouri on August 22,2014.
The mob ran up behind the couple as they left a bar in the city.
The woman was also hit and knocked down in the assault.
The entire episode was caught on tape.
Crime Stoppers and SPD need assistance from the public in identifying suspects or witnesses in this case.
The News-Leader reported:
The video appears to show several men run up behind a male and female in an alley and begin assaulting them for about 30 seconds. The attackers appear focused on the male victim, hitting him from behind and kicking at his head and punching him as he fights back. The woman is also hit and thrown to the ground as she turns and tries to help the man.
Springfield police have released a longer video of an assault of a couple in an alley downtown that was first reported Wednesday.
While the original video, less than 10 seconds, showed part of an assault, police released a 45-second video Thursday that appears to show the entire incident.
Police and Crime Stoppers released the video to get help in identifying suspects in a downtown assault.About five seconds after the attack, two police officers are seen running down the alley after the alleged suspects.
According to a news release, the assault occurred at 12:18 a.m., Aug. 22 at 318 S. South Ave.
Police spokeswoman Lisa Cox said the male victim was upset with a group of males for allegedly “disrespecting his girlfriend” at a bar and confronted the group about it outside the bar. Where that happened is unclear; the assault happened as the victims walked alone and were hit from behind.
Don’t expect this to make many headlines.
It doesn’t fit the liberal media narrative.
