Staten Island Youth Beaten And Stabbed Epoch Times
February 10, 2006
A 14-year-old boy was attacked by a gang of knife, bat, and icepick wielding youths last Saturday in a park near his Staten Island home. The boy, Richard Orlosky, has been in the hospital ever since, recovering from multiple stab wounds and lacerations, including a seriously punctured lung. His life has hung in the balance as he has had to undergo surgery for his collapsed lung. The question on everyone’s mind, including Richard’s, is “Why did they do this to him?”
Richard’s mother, Barabara Orlofsky, and her attorney Devon Reiff, fielded questions from the media at a press conference on the steps of City Hall on Friday. “I just want to see justice done and make sure that my son is taken care of and that this kind of thing doesn’t happen to anyone else’s child,” a deeply troubled and grieving Orlofsky told the assembled press. “They beat him like an animal,” she added.
