Gang of Teens Caught on Video Attacking Supermarket Employees

A group of teenagers in Tennessee were caught on video this past weekend attacking a supermarket employee in the parking lot of the Kroger store. Two younger employees who rushed to help him out were beaten up as well.

When police arrived, the two employees said that pumpkins over 20 pounds each were thrown directly on their heads as they lay on the ground. They reportedly lost consciousness and were taken to the hospital.

Since the attack, Memphis police have arrested someone they believe participated in the assault on the three Kroger employees. One witness said there were “maybe about 100 to 125 kids” in the parking lot, and added, “They were playing a game called ‘point them out, knock them out,’ where they would point someone out and attempt to knock them out or fight them. There was no real reason behind it.”
