CINCINNATI, Ohio – A recent spate of violent attacks captured on camera in Cincinnati has sparked discussions about safety in the city and on its streets. The incidents have reignited fears for one mother whose son was assaulted in a similar group-style attack at Washington Park.
The mother, who has been identified as Tracey, expressed concerns about her family’s safety due to the recent attacks, and she discussed an incident where her son was targeted by a group of teenagers. According to Tracey, the attack occurred in broad daylight as her son and his friends were harassed by the group of teenagers at the park.
In a disturbing cell phone video recorded by one of the friends, the alleged attackers can be heard taunting her son. Following the incident, her son was left unconscious with cuts, bruises, and other injuries. Tracey highlighted the importance of the video evidence, as none of the park’s security cameras captured the attack.
Despite reaching out to city officials, including the mayor’s office, Tracey claims that her concerns fell on deaf ears. The recent incidents prompted her to speak out and emphasize that the issue of street violence is not new to the city. She expressed hope that the situation would not escalate further, potentially resulting in a fatality.
One of the six alleged perpetrators in her son’s case has been charged with felonious assault, but there is no information on whether any other arrests are pending in the case. The incidents have underscored the urgency of addressing safety concerns in Cincinnati and the need for a proactive response to prevent further violence on the city’s streets.
