A former Minneapolis, Minnesota mayoral candidate was mercilessly beaten up by two teenage girls after having his cellphone stolen at a Mall of America Starbucks.
Mark Andrew came in second to Betsy Hodges in the most competitive mayoral race Minneapolis has seen in a generation.
The former Hennepin County Commissioner had just hung up the phone and was in the middle of writing his New Year's resolutions Thursday evening when a young man came up and swiped his iPhone 4S off the cafe table.
'I was targeted because the phone was out and I'm 63 years old, and I'm sure they thought that I was easy pickins,' he told the Star Tribune.
Not one to sit ideally by while a wrong is committed, Andrew got up and chased after the man but was stopped by his two teenage girl friends.
'If somebody is gonna do that to me or somebody else, I'm not a bystander by nature I'll go in and fight,' he told CBS Minnesota.
The women, one of them armed with a billy club, didn't let Mr Andrew get away and mercilessly beat him over the head until he started bleeding profusely.
When Mr Andrew fought back, one of the women,18-year-old Letaija Shapree Cutler-Cain from Brooklyn Park, gouged his face with her fingernails and said: 'I'm going to kill you! Let me go or I'm going to kill you'.
Mr Andrew says it took about five minutes for police to arrive and that hundreds of shoppers witnessed the incident, but no one intervened because 'they were too afraid' and he called that a 'sad commentary'.

He IS “easy pickens’” because of the liberal policies he and his party have mandated over the last 50 years. ‘Couldn’t happen to a more derving fella.
Greedy one percenter liberal hack!!! He should have given his constituents his iphone and bought another for the other girl. Greedy liberal hypocrite b******!!!!!!!!!!
What>>> You say he wants to redistribute my money not his??? What the ..... !!!
He's 63 - I'm 61. I'm afraid I would have done some serious damage even if I wasn't armed. The "girl" would have had some broken bones at the least.
You were easy pickins and they got your phone and you got knocked out and a gash upside your progressive gun hating noggin!
By the looks of it, it appears they were right.......
Kinda reminds me of a famous boxer’s words: If I hadn’t gotten knocked out in the first round I coulda won the fight.......
“”I’m sure they thought that I was easy pickins,””
“By the looks of it, it appears they were right.......”
Those fools thought they could steal my phone, oh wait...
are those things legal?...batons, that is....
It depends on the State you live in. Some States make it a felony to possess these things and perhaps in others it might not be a crime.
Our society is reduced to polar bear hunting and apple picking.
“I saw Marks graduation pictures from the school of hard knocks. Very impressive. He was allegedly beaten. Then again his head may have spontaneously begun to ooze blood. Lataijees friend Shatonya says that the Ivy League scholarship is in the bag.”
