(Video below the fold)
Barbarians who should be put down like the violent uncontrollable animals they are.
(NY Daily News) –Seven Chicago hoodlums, including three 15-year-olds, slashed a commuter on a train platform during a ruthless machete attack, police say.
All seven — ranging in age from 23 to 15 — have been charged in the Monday [Sept. 8, 2014] assault, which left one man with serious cuts to his neck and head.
The crew approached two brothers, 17 and 26 years old, on a Brown Line train platform in Albany Park around 12:30 a.m., Chicago’s WLS reported.
They asked the victims to flash them gang signs, a request the two refused because they were not in a gang, they said.
That’s when 18-year-old Mario Elvira pulled out a machete.
The teen hacked into the 26-year-old’s head and neck, police said. Platform security video showed the rest of the group surrounding the victims as Elvira slashed.
He kept swinging until the next train pulled into the station, sending the seven scurrying.
The 26-year-old was taken to a local hospital in stable condition with a deep gash to the head, which required 30 stitches. The 17-year-old was not injured.
Police caught the group shortly after the attack.
