Brooklyn Bridge Park Mayhem - Girl, 15 Beaten & Robbed, Two Other Teens Robbed By Gun Point In Separate Incidents


By Geoffrey Croft

It was Mayhem inside Brooklyn Bridge Park yesterday as police were forced to clear sections of the park for a large disorderly group.

A 15-year-old girl (Brooklyn resident) was attacked by seven unknown teens who punched and kicked her as she was leaving the park. She was jumped after getting into a fight with a female black inside the park at 3:30 p.m. near Doughty Street and Furhman Streets.

They knocked her to the ground, beat her and took her I-phone and metro card.

The victim was taken to Downstate Medical Center for treatment for facial injuries and released.

A few hours later two teens were robbed at gun point inside the park near Columbia Street and Jorelemon Streets. 

The 16 and 18 year-old victims were inside the park at 6:00pm when they were approached by a group of 12 males that demanded their property. 

One assailant kicked the 18-year-old in the back and another punched the other victim in the face. One member of the gang pulled out a silver pistol and repeatedly demanded property.

They took a belt and an I phone from the victims and fled.

Police have since stepped up patrols in and around the park.
