‘Knockout game’ suspect chased down by victim’s friend

By Philip Messing

A Brooklyn fare-beater allegedly punched a young woman in the face while apparently playing the “knockout game” in a Manhattan PATH station — and her friend chased him down, put him in a chokehold and forced him to apologize, sources said. Ibrahim King, 36, allegedly slugged 21-year-old Elizabeth Mejia, breaking her orbital bone, in the Ninth Street station around 3:40 a.m. Sunday. “He looks at her for a very short moment and then he pulls his right fist back and lunges across the railing and punches her in the face,” said Mejia’s friend Steve Sala. Sala chased and grabbed King, then put him in a chokehold, ripping out one of his dreadlocks in the process.

An unprovoked attack is wrong at any age, but a 36-year doing such things is even less forgivable than a 16-year old doing so. The attacker belongs in jail.

"Ibrimim" ? Isn't that racist to say a name like that? Is Ibrihim a "son" of u know who?

Forced him to apologize? If some Ibrihim hit my GF, he'd be crapping out his mouth and into a plastic bag for the rest of his miserable life. "Just sayin" -

The attacker belongs in jail.

The transit cops later arrested him. I wonder how many hours of community service he'll get.

That is an evil looking punk. I wouldn’t want to live around him. In addition to having to nail down everything I own I would have to be carrying 24/7

Steve Sala deserves a community award.

Well done, sir.

I think each and every one of the punks ought to have the absolute s..t beat out of them by court order. I’m sure there’d be more than a few civilian volunteers.

Wrong—he belongs in the morgue. We continue to nod & wink at this behavior with slaps on the wrist for “punishment”.

Regardless, those tea partier’s are the real evil in this nation according to our gov’t.

On the contrary!

Eric Holder will denounce the “vigilante” who “took matters into his own hands” and acted in a lawless act of revenge on the poor oppressed minority man.

He’ll open a separate investigation and throw the book at him.

Ole Ibrahim looks like a zoo animal. He needs to be put in a cage.

Holder will be after the girl’s friend for ripping out one of the perp’s dreadlocks. After all the girl is a white perpetrator of oppression against the black race and she deserved it!

Should have kept the choke hold on him for about 5 minutes after he went limp.

At 36 he’s probably a good boy trying to get his life on track by taking classes at the community college and working as an aspiring DJ on the weekends.

In a circumstance like that, two good responses would be to either stomp their kneecap or do a foot crush of their hand.

An apology is meaningless. This is a “dog vs. coyote” situation. A dog typically fights for dominance, but a coyote fights to kill; this is why coyotes win fights with dogs.

In street fighting situations, you *always* must assume that your opponent wants to kill you or someone else, so your attitude must be that of the coyote.

Isn't that a bit harsh? The article says that he already apologised.
