Brooklyn group of black youths blocks white couple's car, bloody victims in racial attack
say Ronald and Alana Russo were pummeled by attackers — ranging in age
from 12 to 18 — who showered them with racial slurs. One Brooklyn teen
says he was falsely arrested because he was wearing the same outfit as
one of the assailants.
A group of 10 black youths — one of them a 12-year-old girl —
surrounded a white couple's car in Brooklyn, viciously beating the
husband and yanking the wife to the pavement by her hair as they
peppered the two with racial slurs, authorities said.
“Get those crackers!” some of them screamed, according to court papers. “Get that white whore!”
The confrontation erupted about 7 p.m. Monday, as the marauding group
crossed Avenue U at E. 58th St. near Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill
Ronald Russo, 30, and his wife, Alanna, apparently had the green light
and the husband honked at the group to get out of the way. The rowdy
kids started kicking the car, according to the criminal complaint.
Ronald Russo got out to check on potential damage to his vehicle.
