Brutal urban assaults on innocent citizens by inner city thugs continues to make headlines all over the country.
The so-called “knockout game” involves young punks sneaking up on unsuspecting victims and sucker punching them with enough force to knock them out. A successful “knockout” earns the attacker instant street cred and racks up “likes” on social networking websites.
One such attack that was caught on video is unique in that the attacker, Sharkeisha, appears to know her victim.
UPDATE: Sharkeisha’s beating victim, Sharmichael Manuel, 17, told KHOU-TV she was astounded when her former friend mauled her in such fashion.
The Houston teenager says the assailant and a group of girls set her up for the fight video, luring her to an apartment complex under false pretenses.
Manuel thought she was picking up some of her belongings. She was wrong.
“I was just in shock. I was like oh my God. Did she really do this? You’re supposed to be my close friend,” Manuel said. “We were talking in school earlier that day.”
“She made it seem like there was nothing wrong with her.”
The fight broke out over a boy, Manuel reveals, and after Sharkeisha finished the staggering assault, a neighbor drove the battered teen home.
Manuel was left with black eye and busted lip. She hasn’t returned to school since the assault, in part because she has trouble seeing out of her eye.
“It is hurting and crushing to me,” Manuel said, noting that the physical pain is just the start. “I felt humiliated, embarrassed and hurt at the same time.”

The incident took place last month during a traffic cop, when police pulled over a minivan driven by Orianna Ferrel. Ferrel, 39, was stopped for speeding at a blistering 71 in a 55 mph zone, according to the cops.
Ferrel was ordered out of the vehicle, but she sped off instead. Cops gave chase and Ferrel eventually pulled over. The soccer mom was dragged out of the vehicle and taken behind the van, where the cop attempted to cuff her in view of her hysterical children. For some reason, she ran back around to the driver side door with the cop in pursuit.
