82-Year-Old Motorist Out to ‘Pick up a Turkey’ Ahead of Thanksgiving Gets Surrounded, Severely Beaten by ATV Gang

An 82-year-old man who’s daughter said was out to “pick up a turkey” was surrounded and severely beaten in Boston last week by an ATV and dirt bike gang that numbered between 30 and 40 riders, WCVB-TV reported. . .

State police told WCVB that the ATV/dirt bike gang was on Boylston Street near Fenway Park last Thursday around 7:30 p.m. when the victim noticed the gang approaching him.

The gang then forced the victim upon a curb when some of the bikers smashed the windows of the victim’s car, the station said. . .

“He was going to pick up a turkey. That’s all he was doing. A simple errand at 7:30 at night,” the victim’s daughter told WCVB. “You wouldn’t think that it would be a dangerous time for someone to be out.”

The daughter added to the station that her dad “wasn’t doing anything wrong. He’s simply traveling somewhere, and then he gets attacked, and it’s heartbreaking for us to know that it’s not safe for our 82-year-old father to be out by himself. Discouraged at humanity in general to know that someone — or more than someone — can get together and beat on a defenseless elderly man.” (Read more from “82-Year-Old Motorist Out to ‘Pick up a Turkey’ Ahead of Thanksgiving Gets Surrounded, Severely Beaten by ATV Gang” HERE)
