It was a stick-y situation.

A trio of teenage jerks vandalized a man’s car with sticks before physically attacking him when he exited his vehicle in Williamsburg on Nov. 5, authorities said.

The three branch-carrying suspects approached the 43-year-old victim while he sat inside his car parked in front of 17 Orient Ave. around 6:20 pm, and started bashing the automobile with the sticks until he fled the vehicle, police said.

The alleged ruffians proceeded to slug the guy in his head and torso, leaving painful bruises all over his body, before fleeing to parts unknown, according to a report.

Paramedics took the man to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center where he received treatment for his injuries before being released.

Cops described the three suspects as men between the ages of 17 and 19.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.

Reasonable discourse

an eye for an eye from Brooklyn says:
When the police catch the punks, for which they should leave no stone unturned, it should be the publics opportunity to beat these teens up in the public street and give them a taste of their own medicine.

Attacks against the public should be met with an eye for an eye.
