Last Saturday, an FDNY Firefighter did the right thing by trying to stop some kids from harassing an elderly couple. And he received one hell of a beating for it. NYPD released surveillance video (link below) today of the six teen suspects in the brutal assault of that off-duty Firefighter who suffered 5 lost teeth, a concussion and he needed 25 stitches to close up a huge laceration to his head…. after he tried to stop them from harassing a couple on the Upper East Side.
The video shows the happy teens walking jubilantly down the street giggling and joking just minutes after they allegedly jumped the 38-year-old Firefighter on E. 86th St. near Third Ave. about 0930 hours last Saturday.
The teens were taunting the elderly couple when the Firefighter told them to knock it off. One of them sucker-punched the Firefighter in the back of the head, knocking him face first to the ground, and they then kept hitting him…causing numerous injuries.
The suspects are described as 3 boys and 3 girls, ages 15 to 17-they are pictured in the below video. Anyone with information is asked to please call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
HERE IS THE VIDEO OF THE ALLEGED BEATERS:
Take Care. Be Careful. PASS THIS ON.
