‘Boredom beating’ victim Pat Mahaney dead less than a year after the beating

A man assaulted and robbed by six teens during a “boredom beating” in North College Hill has died.

Pat Mahaney, age 46, passed away Friday at University of Cincinnati Medical Center a little less than a year after the vicious beating that caused him to suffer internal bleeding and put him in the hospital for four days.

Pat Mahaney attacked by teensInvestigators determined the teens instigated the August 2012 attack because they were “bored” and looking for something to do.

North College Hill Police Chief Gary Foust said the juveniles jumped Mahaney from behind, hit him in the head and knocked him to the ground with a six-pack of beer he had just purchased.

“As they were approaching the individual they actually discussed this event, before actually doing the event,” Foust said.

Marty Korte said he still doesn’t understand why anyone would want to hurt his neighbor.

“He was a good boy. He was taking care of his mother,” said Korte, who has lived on the Dallas Avenue block where Mahaney was attacked for 50 years.

Mahaney was released from the hospital within a couple of weeks after the attack. If the man’s autopsy points to the attack as a cause of death then further charges against the teens will follow.

    “Mahaney was attacked for 50 years”. Really? That’s the level of your “journalistic” skill?

    what was he buying from the convenience store? I want to see his school records and criminal history.

  3. Your Name... says:

    Who the f*** wrote this? a 5th grader?

  4. Your Name... says:

    This news site must be for the average racist. How are these two cases similar?

  5. re: Trayvon Martin, where is the outrage for Pat Mahaney? says:

    […] Yes, he had the misfortune of being born white. That is why you never heard his story which goes like this. […]

  6. Lance says:

    Of course, they fail to mention that the teens were all black and Pat was white. Where are the angry Hollywood celeb tweets now???

  7. Shawn McDowell says:

    Why is the race of the teens not mentioned?

  8. Ron says:

    Where are the Justice for Pat marches and speeches?
