NYPD: 14-year-old charged with assault in connection to attacks on seniors

Police arrested a 14-year-old boy Friday who they say was allegedly part of a group of young men responsible for assaulting three senior citizens in Sheepshead Bay a few days ago.
The victims were all over the age of 60 years old.
Surveillance video shows a young man running off after police say he punched an 81-year-old in the face around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Investigators say the incident happened on East 27th Street in Sheepshead Bay. Residents say the area is mostly quiet and rarely sees violence.
The attacks didn't stop there. Police say around 20 minutes later, a 64-year-old man was walking near Avenue U and East 29th Street, when he was approached by a group and punched in the face.
Later that night, police say a 76-year-old woman near Avenue Y was approached by an unknown person who asked her a question before punching her in the face, and fleeing.
Community members are hoping for everyone involved to be held responsible.
All three victims were injured in the incidents. Two victims were treated by EMS, while one refused medical attention.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
