(RightWingAmericans.com) – New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio continues to oversee a massive decline in quality of life across New York City’s boroughs, with crime on the rise and the streets getting more dangerous. This week, five teenage boys were charged in relation to an alleged attack against another teenager, a girl, in Brooklyn.
Miss Giuliani yet?
On Saturday, a rally was held in support of the 15-year-old girl. The grandmother’s victim, Pamela, said her granddaughter’s spirits were broken.
“All I think about is the boy, Lesandro Guzman Felix, 15, who got killed in the Bronx, and I thought, please don’t let nothing happen to my baby,” she said.
The New York Police Department said the five boys ranged between the ages of 14 and 17. They were not caught but instead handed themselves in at the 77th Precinct. They were all charged for assault and robbery and will face a Family Court hearing.
The incident took place on Utica Avenue in Crown Heights on Thursday at around 4 pm. Video footage of the attack showed the boys randomly lunging at the girl before kicking her, punching her, and beating her until she lost consciousness.
When the girl passed out, one boy stole her sneakers, wallet, and phone.

Community advocate Tony Herbert spoke with the mother of one of the young boys charged, telling the media that she has pledged to purchase new sneakers for the girl. Thankfully, the girl is expected to make a full recovery after leaving the hospital.
The NYPD released a statement after the incident explaining how recent reforms to the criminal justice system, courtesy of the Democrats, was a “significant reason” why New York City has endured a rise in crime over the last year.
“In the first 58 days of 2020, 482 individuals who had already been arrested for committing a serious (felony) crime such as robbery or burglary were rearrested for committing an additional 846 crimes. Thirty-five percent, or 299, were for arrests in the seven major crime categories – murder, rape, robbery, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny and grand larceny auto – that is nearly triple the amount of those crimes committed in the same 58 days in 2019. All of [sic] people were arrested for offenses that prior to Jan 1 and bail reform, could have landed them in jail.”
