Last month, seven people attacked a 14-year-old boy inside a subway station in East New York, Brooklyn.  

The teen was approached by the group when they suddenly began punching him in the head and body, according to police.  In a video, taken by one of the suspects, it showed the boy cowering in a corner as he was repeatedly pummeled.  He was then seen curled up on the ground as the attack continued.
