Three More Arrests In Virginia-Pilot Beatings

Police in Norfolk, Va., have arrested three more black teenagers in connection with a mob assault last month on two white reporters for the local newspaper, a case which has sparked national public outrage but little media attention.

Two 16-year-olds and one 13-year-old were taken into custody Saturday, each charged with two counts of simple assault by mob and one count of participation in a riot, both of which are misdemeanors.

It brings the total number of arrested suspects to four, since another 16-year-old was arrested May 3, charged with throwing a missile at a vehicle, a felony, as well as two counts of simple assault by mob, destruction of property and participation in a riot, all misdemeanors.

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Two teenagers charged in connection with a Downtown Norfolk mob assault on two Virginian-Pilot reporters appeared in court Monday morning and spoke exclusively with WAVY News 10’s Andy Fox.

Police made the  latest arrests , of two 16-year-olds and a 13-year old, Saturday and charged each with two counts of simple assault by mob and one count of participation in a riot. The second 16-year-old suspect will be in court Tuesday.

The two families that spoke to WAVY News 10 outside court said police have the wrong guys; that they were not involved in the attack. However, police investigators told WAVY.com Monday they were obviously arrested because somebody puts them at the scene and witnessed their involvement.

According to the police report obtained by WAVY.com , David Forster and his colleague, Marjon Rostami, had just left an event on April 14, when they came to a stoplight at the intersection of Church Street and Brambleton Avenue around 11 p.m. Forster told WAVY.com there was a huge crowd of young people and someone at the crowd threw a rock at his car.

Rostami told police she believed the rock was thrown because the suspect saw her lock her door as a large group of young black men passed by the car.

Forster got out of his car to confront the person who threw the rock and that is when both he and Rostami allege they were attacked.

Police arrested another 16-year-old suspect on May 3. He is the teen accused of throwing the rock. That makes four arrests so far in connection with this incident.

When asked if the attack was racially motivated, one teen suspect simply responded, “no.” The father of the other teen had the same response.

Bruce Sams is the attorney representing one of the 16-year-olds. He told WAVY.com, “I don’t think it has a racial intent. It was certainly an incident that happened that was more sparked. I don’t believe, from my understanding, from what I even know of what happened, that they could even be identified as two white individuals in the car.”

A witness to the attack spoke exclusively with WAVY.com. The 16-year-old is so afraid of retaliation, she insisted on hiding her identity.

10 On Your Side asked if she thinks the teen threw the rock at the car because the driver was white.

“They were throwing stuff, just because … just because. They were just hyped and ‘Oh I want to do something,'” she said. So they threw something. They didn’t know there were going to be white people in the car”

She says there were dozens of people yelling on the sidewalks, mostly kids her age.

“There were cars leaving the party and there were regular people from everyday life, just driving around,” she said. “As they were driving, people kept going. I was confused like is anybody going to get out the car? Is anybody going to beep, stop, help?”

When the driver finally got back into the car, the girl says a group of teens went to check on him. They told her the driver had blood on his face, but said he was fine and planned to tell police.  (More)

    “…police have the wrong guys; that they were not involved in the attack.” A variation on one of my all-time favorite ex-cuses: ” No officer, this ain’t my coat, I don’t know how that (fill in the blank) got into my pocket! I must have picked up the wrong coat at the (fill in the second blank) or maybe someone planted it on me.”

    Misguided children whose minds are scarred by the continuation of 400+ years of socioeconomic deprivation and cultural degradation. Heard that defense more times than I’d like to admit.

    This is an interesting story out of Tampa. A soldier was jumped and beaten over the weekend. The races of the perps is never
    mentioned which sends up red flags for me. And if I’m not badly mistaken, a hoodie may be involved. http://www.wtsp.com/video/default.aspx?bctid=1638229093001&odyssey=mod|tvideo|article

    This is as good as the Thomson affair in Australia. You might ask why. I will tell you about the latest in the saga. Craig Thomson, the MP for the electorate of Dobell (my new electorate) has been named in a report over the use of union funds that amounts to more than $500,000… yes that amount is correct. He used some of the money on prostitutes. The latest excuse from Thomson is that his own union colleagues were against him and threatened to set him up with prostitutes to ruin his political career. I am not joking this is his excuse…. it really is the dog ate my homework type of excuse. It now makes me more cynical when I see someone claiming “they have the wrong boys”…. sure they do…..

    This is from one of the articles linked above:

    “It was certainly an incident that happened that was more sparked. I don’t believe, from my understanding, from what I even know of what happened, that they could even be identified as two white individuals in the car.” Thus spake one of the attorneys for one of the accused (who didn’t do anything and often shares his tomato soup with homeless folk).

    Where on earth did these people go to school? Or didn’t they?

    Perhaps if we herd all of the illiterate college graduates in our nation to California it will (like Guam) finally–at long last–break off into the ocean.

    I notice that the female victim has a dark complexion. Would she be a “Black Caucasion”

    Sparked = Racial
    Rastami appears to be east Indian, Middle East origin; but the White Guy?? No-Brainer.
    And wasn’t it stated the cause of the attack was that some passing youth saw Rastami lock her car door? If they saw that, then they saw the occupants and their race.

      Exactly, thefirstab!! And furthermore, how many car door locks are located at the top of the car door by the window these days?? Most are on the door panel as a theft deterrent. I suppose that the 2 reporters could have been in an 80s model (or older) car, but I’d have to see proof of that. If the vehicle they were in was newer, then I’m having a really hard time understanding how any of those lil stinkers who were just standing around being kids SAW her lock her car door. Were their innocent lil faces pressed against the glass?? Was one of those lil angels lying on the top of the car peering through the sun roof? Cuz if not, then it would have been pretty difficult for them to see her lock the car door.

    It’s like I’ve always taught my kids……if you see someone driving down the street, and they lock their car door, throw rocks at them.

    Geesh…..I don’t know why we didn’t figure this out sooner!!!!! Bless their little hearts. Silly kids.

    Gag!!!
