A police report reads,”[Responding officers] believe that [Pace] was the victim of the latest ‘knockout game.’”
The knockout game, a trend involving attacks on unsuspecting victims, has made national headlines recently with many attacks videotaped and posted online.
Friday afternoon, police said they were searching social media for clues, but backed away from the report saying they simply don’t know the motive for the assault.
“I’m not gonna play into this knockout game. It’s not a game. It’s a crime,” said Dallas police Major Jeff Cotner. “These actions are criminal.”
