Elizabeth Hur reports for CBS Philly, August 7, 2012, that three black juveniles, including one as young as seven, are wanted for a home invasion in Philadelphia and savagely beating an Asian woman in the home.
The home invasion took place in broad daylight, around 3:30 p.m. on Monday in the 1200 block of Luzerne Street.
Authorities say the pre-teens beat the 51-year-old woman with a rock and objects they found in the house, including sticks, rope, a plunger, and a potted plant. A family friend found her in the backyard, on her knees, crying and begging for her life to be spared. She was rushed to Temple University Hospital to be treated for cuts and bruises to her face and knees.
When police arrived, they found her room ransacked, cabinets emptied and the victim, an Asian female with mental disabilities, beaten and robbed. The three suspects, described by the victim as black juveniles, ran away with the victim’s purse.
A family friend asked that CBS Philly not identify the victim: “They just followed her. She just got back from doing laundry. When she got home, they beat her and threw stuff into the house. They kept asking for money and they took her purse with some important paper in there.”
Police were eventually able to identify the suspects as 7, 10 and 12-year-old boys.
“It’s amazing that these kids so young can be so violent,” Lt. John O’Hanlon added. Neighbor Edward Pastoriza said, “It doesn’t surprise me. A lot of these kids, they hang around with older kids and they learn how to do things like this.”
It turns out, the 10-year-old suspect was a neighbor of the victim. He was arrested almost immediately.
The victim’s family friend explained, “The parents came to apologize and after they saw what happened, they said to call the police.” Lt. O’Hanlon added, “The mother knew something was wrong when she saw the police and she basically came outside and said, ‘Here he is.’”
As of late Monday, police say they believe they have identified the remaining two suspects as 7 and 12-year-old boys. Police expect to arrest them shortly and charge the 10 and 12-year-olds with Home Invasion Robbery and related offenses.
By law, however, the 7-year-old is too young to be charged with a crime.
Gosh, do you think Obama will say if he had sons, they would look just like these pre-teen savages?
