[Ed. – It really was difficult to find imagery evidence about this, clearly because the MSM don’t want it to be obvious that the mob of teens was black.  There’s surveillance camera footage of the mob forming, and the local media do show some of that.  Photos on Twitter show the identified victims as white Temple students.]

Investigators say it began through social media with a message for a large group of teens to meet near the campus Friday night.

Police estimate that 200 teenagers were in the crowd at the movie theater at Broad and Oxford and then divided into smaller groups, attacking and robbing students.

In one attack, police say an 18-year-old girl suffered scrapes and cuts to her leg and her cell phone was smashed. Authorities say her debit card was also taken from her purse. …

As officers tried to disperse the crowd, police say a 16-year-old came up to the officer’s horse and struck the horse twice in the face. …

A Temple student tells Eyewitness News he and his girlfriend were also assaulted. …

He says around 9:30 Friday night he was leaving work when he saw what looked to be at least 200 juveniles walking in large groups. …

He says a juvenile around 10 years old started shouting obscenities at him and grabbed his phone out of his hand. The student says the juvenile then came back and threw the phone at him, striking him in the face. …

As the student was chasing [another group] away, he says he was struck in the face by someone he estimates to be eight years old.
