Police were struck by how cocky the boys were for their age. (We're not. --Ed.)
Pat Mahaney was walking home Saturday with a six-pack of beer,
looking forward to a quiet evening watching sports, when something hit
him in the back of the head.
“The next thing I knew I woke up on
my neighbor’s front step and the life squad was there,” the 45-year-old
North College Hill resident said Wednesday.
Six teenagers “were
just bored and were looking for something to do,” a police report said,
when they ambushed Mahaney as he turned off Simpson Avenue onto Dallas
Avenue. He was immediately knocked unconscious.
“I don’t remember anything,” Mahaney, 45, said as he recovered at his
mother’s home. “I was walking home from the store – and ‘bam.’”
was probably a blessing he was knocked out during the worst of the
brutal attack – one of the teens even grabbed a can of beer and hurled
it at his head.
