NYPD: 14-year-old hit in the head during altercation at the Staten Island Mall – SILive.com

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A teenager was hit in the head after an altercation at the Staten Island Mall in New Springville Friday afternoon, according to police.

Police responded to a report of an assault at the food court of the mall at around 5 p.m. after a female hit a 14-year-old in the back of the head, causing redness and pain, an NYPD spokeswoman told the Advance.

The 14-year-old refused medical attention and police didnt arrest anyone in connection to the incident, according to the spokeswoman.

The female allegedly said: Why are you looking at me?" before hitting the 14-year-old, the spokeswoman said.

A social media video shows what appears to be part of the altercation between two teenagers.

A spokeswoman for the Mall didnt respond to an email seeking comment about the incident Saturday morning.


This is the latest fight reported at the Staten Island Mall. Residents raised concerns in July after the NYPD investigated at least five separate assaults on teen girls in the Staten Island Mall over a 10 day period.

On the night of Friday, June 21, four separate attacks were reported on teen girls in the New Springville shopping complex, a law enforcement source previously told the Advance.

In several of the attacks that day, one of the perpetrators videotaped the beating, the source said.

A few days later, at about 9 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26, two 14-year-old girls were walking outside the entrance of JC Penney, near Applebees, when they were set upon by a larger group of female teens.

On that occasion, a 12-year-old girl was charged in four assaults that occurred during the summer, a law enforcement source said.

Later in November, a group of about 10 teenagers walked toward a group of three adults near the malls Lands End entrance on Richmond Avenue , and started picking up items, like bottles from the floor and leftover garbage, and throwing them and spitting at the trio, the Advance previously reported.
