A bystander managed to video tape an attack on a 62-year-old man by two teenage girls that were acting like animals in Syracuse, New York.
Gary Martin, the older gentlemen, nicely asked the girls, hanging out with their friends, to move from the front of his car, which he was trying to sell. The group of teens responded by assaulting the man.
In the video, you can see four girls surrounding the man. You can see him trying to talk to them while they hit him in the face.
Martin then tried to chase the teens out into the street, when one grabbed him and spun him, causing him to fall. Martin carried a cane with him, so he was not in the physical shape to withstand the attacks.

Bystanders who witnessed the incident can be heard laughing in the video.
Martin said he was punched twice by two teenage girls; he suffered a bruised eye from the attack.
Authorities arrested and charged the two teen girls, ages 14 and 15, with third-degree assault, according to WSTM.
The mother of one of the girls sent her apologies to Martin, stating that her daughter’s behavior was uncalled for. She added that her daughter will accept responsibility for her actions and whatever consequences are handed down.
The cellphone video of the attack was shared on Facebook and quickly went viral on social media. On Facebook alone, it has been viewed more than 1,000,000 times, according to WTVR.
Martin has even been contacted by family members in Ireland who saw it.
