The assault scene was a beehive of activity. EMS workers attended to the victim while police questioned eyewitnesses and suspects and attempted to calm down the distraught husband. An unidentified Far Rockaway woman was assaulted by a group of teens, who hit her repeatedly over the head with their fists and with a brick, eyewitnesses say.

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.

Eyewitnesses said that it took nearly 25 minutes for an EMS ambulance to respond to the assault location at Rockaway Beach Boulevard and Beach 100 Street. The woman was transported to Jamaica Hospital, where she is reportedly in stable condition.
