“There were at least 100 kids … I was walking my dog. They just picked me out and approached me,” the victim told The Post Saturday.
“One kid took his shirt off and said, ‘it’s Fight Night!’ He said he was 19 and said, ‘I could fight you.’ Everyone took their cell phones out. There were cell phones everywhere,” he previously recalled.
“They all came at me,” he added. “A kid came up behind me and hit me in the back of the head with a bottle and I let go of the dog.”
“They didn’t care at all. The kids were going crazy.”
