Watch: New Yorkers fear the ‘knockout game’ will hit them next

“There is no point to it, it’s crazy.”

A woman who was standing near a victim of the “knockout game” when he was attacked summed up the terrifying “game” that involves punching someone to knock them out and then taking a selfie with your victim. People are chosen at random, so anyone could be a knockout victim.

The twisted fad crops up from time to time among teenagers. In September, a Lower East Side resident was punched while walking her dog, while last year, a Muslim man was attacked outside a mosque and beaten so badly he required surgery to repair broken bones in his face, the New York Post reported.

A CBS News report from 2013 documented seven attacks in New York City alone; “knockout game” attacks documented in multiple cities resulted in fatalities and murder charges for the teens involved.
