Children Attack Man In D.C. Metro While Bystanders Watch (VIDEO)

A group of children attacked a man in the D.C. Metro, and no one did a thing to intervene. But the video is on the web.

On Sunday night, Allen Haywood found himself confronted and attacked by two kids in the L'Enfant ("the child" in French) Plaza Metro station in Washington D.C., according to TBD. Transferring to the Yellow line at a little after 7 p.m., Haywood found himself being assailed by a boy of about 11 or 12 years old. Then, a girl began attacking him.

"Stop it! Stop it! Goddamn it! You stop this [expletive] right now! I did nothing to you!" he exclaimed.

As the violence continued, no one stepped in to help. Instead, Haywood saw others with cell phones recording the attack.

"I can understand people not wanting to get physically involved," Haywood, 47, told TBD. "But nobody pressed the emergency button or went to the booth."

The video below was posted by an anonymous account, which doesn't seem to be affiliated with the attackers, on Tuesday.
