Woman Assaulted With Brick On RBB
Police were called to Rockaway Beach Boulevard and Beach 90 Street at about 1 p.m. on Tuesday for a report of a large disorderly crowd beating a woman.
By the time police arrived, however, the gang, made up mostly of teenage girls, had dispersed and the woman was lying on the ground, bleeding from her head. Police canvassed the area and spoke to the eyewitnesses. At least one person was arrested, but it was unclear at press time as to what his role was in the attack.
Several of the eyewitnesses said that the attackers were from Beach Channel High School. Hours before the assault, the Department of Education announced that it was going to phase-out the school and then close it to make way for another new school.
