The robbery happened in front of a home on Friday on the 10100 block of Swann Way. The video shows the 12-year-old with his backpack being confronted by someone in a car.

As one of the suspects continues to talk to the boy on his bike, another suspect runs up the sidewalk.

The first two suspects take the boy to the ground as two more come running in from across the street.

The suspect in the red shirt runs past the boy, appearing to kick him in the head without breaking stride.

The suspects then proceed to lift the boy by his limbs and backpack

The four suspects attempt to get what they can off of the teen, appearing to make off some of the boy’s possessions.

A horn honks, prompting the four to end their search, fleeing to the car and driving off. The suspect in red appears to attempt fleeing in the opposite direction, but instead gets into the car with the other three suspects.

The four suspects were all charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. One was additionally charged with assault with a deadly weapon or means likely to produce great bodily injury.

    4 black kids attack a white kid.
    Why is this not a hate crime ?

  2. Brian Hughes says:

    This should be a hate crime as 4 black kids attack a white kid that is several years younger than they are. If this was the other way around and it was 4 white kids attacking a younger black child then you would see people marching in the streets calling this a racist attack. Well it was a racist attack and these kids should all be charged with a hate crime and there parents should be questioned and perhaps charged as well.

    Hate crime??? This wasn’t racially motivated. It was a HORRIBLE robbery. I live in Elk Grove. A few weeks ago just a few houses down my neighbors son had a similar experience and my neighbors are African American. Their 13 year old African American son was attacked by a group of African American boys who took his phone as well.

    Parents….. do you know where and what your kids are doing????? OMG…. when my 4 sons were younger, Me as a single parent knew where they were all the times. They surely were not running around the dam neighborhood assaulting and robbing other kids… in broad day light mind you. HORRIBLE. Jail time for sure… as well as a punishment for the parents! That will teach parents to have a better hand on their children because they have to pay the consequences also!!!!
