The video is disturbing.
An ice cream truck driver is forced out of his truck and beaten down with a bat.
“They jumped me and take a bat and hit me with the bat,” said Mamadou Bah.
He told WREG he is lucky to be alive after being flagged down for what he thought was an ice cream stop inside the Bella Vista Apartments around 7:30 Tuesday night.
“This hand is broken because they hit me with a metal bat,” said Bah.
He said one man jumped in and started beating him, causing his ice cream truck to wreck.
Then two others joined in the attack.
The stunning video shows them swinging bats across Bah’s head and busting out the ice cream van windows.
He said he never saw the attackers before, but thinks he knows why they hit him.
“Just to take my money and kill me, that’s it,” he said.
He said they took $480.
Bah was able to get up and get help.
He spent several hours at the hospital and is at home with a broken arm and swollen face.
Then, to add insult to injury, residents of the apartment complex where this took place started spreading false rumors that Bah was attacked because he was a pedophile. I’m guessing that the residents who started that rumor are the thugs who robbed him. Once the video went viral they needed to justify their blatant thuggery.
