Moment Yob Pummels Old Man To Ground For Social Media Likes

This is the moment a thug walks up to an elderly man on the pavement and suddenly pummels him to the ground with his three pals so they could score a social media hit.

Three of the four youths in the footage have reportedly appeared at the public prosecutor’s office accompanied by their parents to turn themselves in of their own free will following the incident.

The assault was filmed in the city of Guadalajara in the Mexican state of Jalisco on 18th November and the footage was widely shared online, leading to some of the group members being identified by netizens.

As a result, three of the suspects have already appeared at the public prosecutor’s office with their parents and are subject to an investigation.

In the footage, three suspects are seen walking along the pavement as the fourth member films from behind.

One of the thugs punches an unsuspecting man on the pavement who falls back against the wall.

The yob then hits him twice more in the face and the man drops to the ground.

State governor Enrique Alfaro said that the elderly victim “is doing fine”, adding: “The minors, without conscience and certainly without values, hit an older person simply for fun outside the Alcalde market.”

He called youngsters committing such acts to garner social media attention a “cancer” in society.
