Man, 25, Beaten Nearly To Death By 40 Teens Using Skateboards

HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say a Good Samaritan who tried to intervene in a fight between two groups of teens in Huntington Beach Saturday evening, was nearly beaten to death by the same teens who attacked him with their skateboards.

Police say 40 teens attacked the 25-year-old man — about 7:50 p.m. — at Murdy park in Huntington Beach. The man is in extremely critical condition.

Officials said the man’s girlfriend saw the teens involved in an altercation.

After the girlfriend tried to intervene, the crowd turned on her. She got away but returned with her boyfriend. Police said the teens than turned on him.

The man tried to flee to a nearby laundromat where the attack continued, said police.

Huntington Beach Police said on their Facebook page that four juveniles were arrested for attempted murder. All four are currently on probation for other crimes and have been taken to Orange County Juvenile Hall, said authorities.

Police said more arrests could come soon.

The Good Samaritan was transported to UCI Medical Center where he underwent emergency surgery.

KCAL9′s Tom Wait spoke to witnesses who observed the brutal beating.

Sandy Nguyen, who works at the nail salon two doors down from Surf City Coin Laundry, said, “I was so scared. So I locked the door. They used their skateboards to beat the boy in the head.”

Witness Erik Yslas saw a group of kids run through the parking lot. “I saw four people running into the parking lot, didn’t know what was going on at first. I spin to my left and saw all the cops right there.”

Dave Sumner said, “It looked like every cop in Huntington Beach was here, seemed like. At 11:30 [p.m.] there were still a lot of cops all over the parking lot.”

The victim’s identity is being withheld while police continue the investigation, said the Huntington Beach authorities.

And before the usual suspects here start in with the "Amish" comments, be advised that this may be a somewhat different crowd of "teens" than what you are visualizing.

Are you suggesting it was the counter-Amish?

like trying to separate rival packs of hyenas
I keep thinking I have to re-define my concept of ‘teen’. The couple both wanted to protect the innocence of childhood, so to speak, and they were repaid with adult malevolence.

But since there were dozens of them I would recommend an AR-15 with a 30 round magazine.

I’m just saying...

You would have needed a large capacity magazine.

Was this in the news 2-3 weeks ago? The case sounds very familiar.

That one was a large number of Obozo’s feral children acting out again.

Is this a new incident?

Heh... One of the earliest warnings dear old Dad ever gave me was, “Don’t try to break up a fight because you end up with the fighters going after YOU.” He didn’t mean, naturally, not to intervene in an obvious situation of somebody getting mugged or a gang beating up one person, etc. He meant a fight where the odds were basically even and the fighters had a score to settle. Just let them settle the score themselves.

Break down of the family alert and a common culture with boundaries.

My guess is in the 60's if an adult tried to stop this, it would have stopped.

Thanks again Progressive Agenda, Ted Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson etc etc.....

Here is ABC’s version.

http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?id=9099221

“Investigators said two large groups of teenagers - as many as 40 - were fighting just before 8 p.m. Friday at Murdy Park at Goldenwest Street and Warner Avenue. A woman attempted to break up the melee, but some of the teenagers turned on the woman, prompting her 25-year-old boyfriend to intervene.”

“A group of five to 10 teens chased the man across the street and into a laundromat. Police said at least four of them attacked him using their skateboards as weapons, while other teens captured the crime on camera and later posted it on Facebook.”

“When police officers arrived, the teens allegedly ran in multiple directions. Of the seven detained, four of them were booked for attempted murder at Orange County Juvenile Hall.”

It reports he is in critical condition in the hospital after surgery.

If this is around Murdy Park, it could be Hispanics, whites or both.

That area of HB has gone down in the past few years.

...”All four are currently on probation for other crimes”....

We need to arrest and convict these “children” to serve time ....first time around....perhaps if the general population of kids knew they’d go to prison the first time it might stop some of this nonesense.

“After the girlfriend tried to intervene, the crowd turned on her. She got away but returned with her boyfriend”

Chicks love doing this. Arguing with the Hells Angels at the next table, then looking at YOU to go fight. Just watch,,he’s in extremely critical condition, probably brain damaged,, etc. So she’ll have to “get on with her life”. Inside of 6 weeks she’ll be telling the next guy about how her ex-bf was a crime victim and is in a rehab center for a few years now learning to talk again. (as she’s getting dressed to leave the new guy’s place in the morning.)

NOT ENOUGH ~ there were 40 of these punks and 10 rounds min to make sure they're all down, you'd need a 400 round magazine!

Zactly. I see these yutes getting into altercations occasionally when I am working in the hood. I ignore it. No need to get shot.

Although I advocate large capacity magazines....

In a crowd, shooting just one will usually serve the purpose...The rest scatter like cockroaches in a kitchen when the light is turned on....

The same reason cops don’t like domestic violence calls.
Once you are there they both forget about what they were fighting about and turn on you.

“Teens” in one article. “Boys” in another article. Journalists use “boys” and “teens” when wanting to convey and agenda. Just like “women” are 12 years-old.

Feral “teens” wanting to upload to Facebook like that hiphop website where “people” upload fights and attacks. Disgusting. Well, they were stupid enough to upload. Great for law enforcement. Wonder how much these sites are encouraging this kind of behavior? Time to have “background checks” on: skateboards, cell phones, and Facebook and all those sites they upload that garbage on. (/s but, libs won’t admit those sites encourage violence)

I tend to agree, there is a barrio about 1/2 mile southeast of Murdy Park (Oak View a.k.a. “Slater Slums”), and the area west of the park is predominantly white.
