NYC crew pummels teen, beats him with cane in Queens

A ruthless crew pummeled a 15-year-old boy and beat him with a cane and a stick outside a Queens store Monday, cops said. 

The teen victim was standing outside a 99-cent store on Broadway near 48th Street in Woodside around 4:15 p.m. when four strangers, also believed to be teens, approached him, police said. 

“Are you the guy that jumped our friend?” snarled one of the suspects, according to authorities.

The group hit the victim so hard in the back of his head that he temporarily lost consciousness.
