Two brothers from Great Kills were viciously attacked while playing football by a group who wanted the field, A Walk In The Park has learned.
The brothers, age 17, and 15, were playing at Midland Beach Soccer Field on the beautiful Sunday afternoon around 1:00 p.m. when between 7- 10 males believed to be in their early twenties approached the siblings and demanded they leave the field, according to a law enforcement source.
Members of the group - who are believed to be of Albanian decent - started calling the boys names. The boys were surrounded and one of them punched the older brother in the mouth. He repeatedly hit him and knocked him to the ground and began kicking him.
When the younger one tried to stop his older brother from being hit, another person jumped in and started beating him.
"He's only fifteen years old," he screamed, "He's only fifteen."
While trying to defend themselves the siblings sustained several injuries. The older one lost two teeth - two more were loosened - and received a blooded lip. The younger brother sustained a large bump on his head and multiple bruises.
To make matters worse after the fight while the traumatized ad bloodied older brother tried to back out of the parking lot he struck a Parks Department vehicle.
EMS transported the bloodied victims to Staten Island University North Hospital where the family spend four hours said their mother. - Geoffrey Croft
