An attack on a 62-year-old Syracuse, New York, man by two teenage girls was recorded by a bystander and shared to social media (video below).
On Oct. 19, Gary Martin told police he politely asked a group of teens who were in his front yard near a car he is trying to sell to move, but instead two of them allegedly assaulted him, according to a report shared by Hezakya Newz.
In the video, four girls are seen on the lawn with Martin, who is holding his cane. He bends close to one of the girls, who is wearing a red tank top and jeans, and appears to be speaking to her when she hits him in the face.
She runs away and he follows her into the street, as do the other girls. One of the girls then grabs Martin and spins him around in the street, causing his hat to fall off. He then continues to presumably chase after the girl who slapped him, with his cane raised in the air before he falls to the ground.
When Martin gets back up, he runs down the street after the girls, but does not catch up to them.
Bystanders who witnessed the incident can be heard laughing in the video.
