Brooklyn group of black youths blocks white couple's car, bloody victims in racial attack: cops

Authorities say Ronald and Alana Russo were pummeled by attackers - ranging in age from 12 to 18 - who showered them with racial slurs. One Brooklyn teen says he was falsely arrested because he was wearing the same outfit as one of the assailants.

An intersection near Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Brooklyn became the scene of a brutal attack by a group of black youths against a white couple driving through, authorities say.

A group of 10 black youths - one of them a 12-year-old girl - surrounded a white couple's car in Brooklyn, viciously beating the husband and yanking the wife to the pavement by her hair as they peppered the two with racial slurs, authorities said.

"Get those crackers!" some of them screamed, according to court papers. "Get that white whore!"

The confrontation erupted about 7 p.m. Monday, as the marauding group crossed Avenue U at E. 58th St. near Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin.

Ronald Russo, 30, and his wife, Alanna, apparently had the green light and the husband honked at the group to get out of the way. The rowdy kids started kicking the car, according to the criminal complaint. Ronald Russo got out to check on potential damage to his vehicle.

And that's when all hell broke loose.
