A Timeline Of All The Attacks Reportedly Linked To "The Deadly Knockout Game"

A number of unrelated assaults around the country have been reported in the media to be part of an alleged trend in which assailants try to knock someone out with one punch. Here are the attacks that have been linked to the so-called "knockout game."

Posted on
We are investigating two simple assaults. In these incidents the victims sustained minor injuries and were not knocked out. In one of the incidents, the attack appeared to be unprovoked. In the other, it is not clear at this time, but it is under investigation. As always we urge the public to be aware of their surroundings and report suspicious behavior...Also, just so you are aware, It should be noted that the videos Channel 7 showed in their report did not occur here.
