“I got a cut above over my eyelid, and the side of my face is numb – I can’t open my mouth that well and I had a lump the size of a baseball on the side of my head,” says King.

“I believe it was a racial attack – they weren’t trying to rob me, I had money on me and my wallet and all. They weren’t trying to rob me,” King told WABC-TV.

King’s neighbors later saw the attack on video and reacted to the alleged crime.

“I’m a believer in God, that he watches over me, but sometimes you have to watch out for the fools, and there are some fools in this neighborhood,” resident Diana Monroe said to the press.

Elizabeth Sing, responded by saying, “That’s really sad –  that’s desperation in my opinion.” Another resident simply stated in disbelief, “Oh my, look how they’re whipping him.”

King says that he believes the suspects are animals.

“They’re not human – they’re not human at all,” he says.
