Riots broke out in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday night, according to WDRB News, when 200 teens began robbing and assaulting people, including a 13-year-old girl and a man trying to help her. A woman who was parked in her car with two children in the back seat said she was also assaulted by a group of teens. She told police they repeatedly punched her and threw trash cans at her car.
WDRB News also reports that a large group of teens robbed a convenience store, assaulting the clerk as he tried to shut the doors on them. They actually have surveillance video of this attack and all the teens shown appeared to be black.
Police say there were another three victims of assaults in three separate attacks that night and they all had to be taken to the hospital. The mayor is now calling for calm in the city.
While all of these attacks were on Saturday night, WDRB News caught up with a man who told them the attacks actually started on Friday night. He was out with this partner when a group of teens broke off from a larger pack and punched him in the back of the head, trying to knock him out. He said one of them actively tried to fight him.
Here’s another video report that documents the attacks written about above:
With something like this you’d think it’d be all over the news. But not a peep. Might race have something to do with it?
