Mob Mob Beats Man Who Walked His Dog in Queens Amid Rising Violent Crime in the Big Apple

The moment a mob of violent teens attacked an off-duty FDNY firefighter walking his dog in New York City was captured on video.

The firefighter, 44, walked his Labradoodle Dylan, 3, into Juniper Valley Park in the Middle Village neighborhood of Queens around 9:55 PM on Friday.

Suddenly the father of three was overrun by ‘at least 100 children’, he told the New York Post – while someone shouted it was ‘Fight Night’.

“They just picked and approached me,” the firefighter said, telling the outlet he wished to remain anonymous.

He said one of the teens took off his shirt and stated, “I can fight you,” while everyone else pulled out their cell phones. Some of the images have gone viral online.

“They all came at me,” he said. “A kid came up behind me and hit me on the back of the head with a bottle and I let go of the dog.”

The video, which appears to begin mid-attack, shows the man raising his fist as his dog barks at the children before someone grabs his leash.

The firefighter said the kids were “going crazy” and claimed they were “high as a kite” before being hit out of nowhere.

“I got hit, turned around, then the kids started coming at me,” he told the New York Post. “Then I was trapped on the ground with a child.”

He was eventually saved from the beatdown when an ambulance pulled up.

“They were waiting at the park,” said the smoke-eater. “If they hadn’t been there, I would have been in a much worse state.”

Police told the New York Post that the man was hit on the head with a glass bottle and that no arrests have been made. His dog was rescued by a Good Samaritan and was not injured in the attack.

‘I’m a little confused. What are you going to do? Thank God I’m still here. It could have been worse,” said the firefighter.

He said the park has become a meeting place for rowdy teens and noted that he found three knives in the park on Saturday.

Curtis Sliwa, the Republican candidate for mayor of New York City, also shared the video on Twitter, saying the firefighter was attacked when he asked the teens to stop setting off fireworks.

“NYPD of the 104th district was there but did nothing,” claimed Silwa, the founder of the Guardian Angels.

He told the New York Post that the group will begin patrolling the park at 6 p.m. Saturday.

According to data from the NYPD, there were 484 crimes committed in New York City during the week of July 12 to July 18. That number is 3% lower than in the same registration period last year.

However, the crime rate so far this year had increased by 5.9% on July 18 compared to the same date last year. There have been 11,550 cases of assault this year, compared to 10,906 last year.

Crimes rose 10.7% from 684 in 2020 to 757 in 2021 for the week of July 12 to July 18, the data shows. This year, 18,333 crimes have been committed so far, compared to 18,312 last year, an increase of 0.1%.

It was not immediately clear whether – if one of the teens is eventually arrested – they would be charged with a felony or a felony for the assault.
