Cops cuffed two teens they say were part of a caught-on-video gang attack in Coney Island that left a 16-year-old boy with a partially collapsed lung, officials said Thursday.

Maleek Mayers, 16, and Jahcorei Lewis, 17, joined eight other to mercilessly stomp, kick and punch the victim as he lay helpless in the middle of the street on Surf Ave. near W. 10th St. outside the Luna Park amusement area about 6 p.m. Sunday.

The shocking attack was caught on cellphone video and posted to Facebook.


Mayers and Lewis are both charged with gang assault and unlawful assembly, cops said.


The victim, who was rushed to Interfaith Hospital in serious condition, knows his attackers from school and has had run-ins with them in the past, police sources said.


He was walking past the group when one of the youths stopped him and asked, "Are you static?"

When the victim replied "no," the group attacked him en masse, sources said.

Mayers and Lewis were awaiting arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court Thursday.

Three more suspects have been busted in a shocking caught-on-video gang attack on a boy in Coney Island, cops said Friday.

The 16-year-old victim is recovering from a partially collapsed lung.

The newest suspects, a 14-year-old girl and two 15-year-old boys, were arrested Thursday and charged as juveniles with gang assault and unlawful assembly, police said Friday. Their cases will be handled in Family Court.

Maleek Mayers, 16, and Jahcorei Lewis, 17, were arrested earlier this week. They were charged as adults with the same offenses.


The five suspects are accused of mercilessly beating, stomping, kicking and punching the victim in the middle of Surf Ave. on Easter Sunday.

Police sources said the victim knows his attackers, who had beaten him once before, though he did not report that incident.

On Sunday he was asked “Are you static?” and if he was in a gang, sources said. When he said no the group attacked him.

Video of the attack was later posted on Facebook.
