A 17-year-old man faces a third degree assault charge after a possible “knockout game” attack in the Central West End Friday night.
Edward Townsend allegedly struck a 30-year-old man in the head in the 4600 block of McPherson Avenue around 10 p.m.
“Right when he was getting ready to pass me, he punched me in my left temple,” the victim, who wished to remain unidentified, said.
Townsend was reportedly walking with a group of teens when he hit the victim.
“They were just pushing me down on the ground and then I started yelling for help and then they ran in a bunch of different directions,” the victim said.
A St. Louis police officer on bicycle patrol was able to catch some of the teens in the group while officers in patrol cars later found the rest shortly after the incident.
Police believe Townsend was playing the “knockout game” where the goal is to knock the victim unconscious. This would be the first knockout attack outside of south St. Louis City.
