(Scroll down for video) A man who authorities believe is behind at least seven “knockout Game” attacks has been arrested, according to police reports in New York.
Long Island Police said that they arrested the local man, who engaged in attacks dating back to April 2013.
Darryl Mitchell, 20, was behind at least two attacks on elderly residents in the area of Babylon and Amityville.
Darryl Jones said that the attack came out of nowhere. He received a punch to the face that left him stunned. He also suffered from a cut over his eye that required seven stitches to close.
He was walking home from the grocery store at 3:00 p.m., when a young man came walking towards him.
“I was walking down the sidewalk, and I just moved out of the way and into the street. He stood in front of me holding his hands and hit me in the face,” Jones added.
Mitchell also attacked a person on the platform of the Long Island Rail Road in Amityville.
The victims were as young as 17 and as old as 69-years-old.
“He just began hitting me in the face several times for no reason, and then the black male started kicking me in my body and head. I passed out for a bit and all I heard him say was get off my block,” a victim told police.
“This guy is a terrorist,” Jones said.
