Teenage mob attacks good Samaritan while store owner locks the door

A man was savagely attacked by a teenage mob while helping a frightened woman to her car— and store workers locked him out during the beating!

Television station WREG reported a large group of teens had swarmed a Memphis gas station, frightening patron Mary Fuller, when good Samaritan Orrden Williams, Jr. offered to help Fuller to her car.

Williams described his harrowing experience on Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday.

“Actually, the kids were doing more than just loitering.  They were in the parking lot, jumping up and down, throwing gang symbols,” Williams told host Sean Hannity.

“That’s what made her scared.”

Williams said the teens then rushed him and one sucker-punched him in the back of the head.

He told Hannity that’s when he turned to them and said, “Is that your best shot?”

As the teens pummeled him, Williams explained his instinct was to get back inside the store, to put his back against a wall to fight back, but the store owner wouldn’t open the door.

Williams told Hannity he had to go to his family vehicle, which he didn’t want to do, because he was concerned for their safety.

“Your family is in the car, your baby is in the car.  So you purposely put yourself out there; they wouldn’t let you in the store.  And all these kids are pounding on you.  How bad are your injuries?”  Hannity asked.

“They’re not bad,” Williams answered, holding his baby son Joseph and looking totally uninjured.  “No problems.  I came out OK.”

Williams’ actions are strikingly heroic not simply because he faced the teens, but also because he didn’t escalate the situation.

He had a gun in his car, according to WREG.

After being locked out of the store, Williams finally reached his car, while the teens continued to attack him, throwing punches just inches from his baby’s head, the station reported.

“It was a tough call, because there’s kids involved,” Williams said.

Williams said he hopes the police work “diligently in prosecuting all of these kids.”

“Because it’s really bad they are doing this in broad daylight,” he said. “This was a terrorist act, that’s what it was. This lady could have lost her life, I could have lost mine, in broad daylight.”

Memphis police arrested a student at Northwest Prep Academy, Joe Bittman, 19, for the attack.  A bond has been set at $100,000, according to WREG.
