Brooks Macquarrie was beat to sleep; by Black Youths, for his Scooter

Брукс Macquarrie было бить, чтобы спать Черная молодежь, для его скутер

August 19, 2013,  New Haven Connecticut (WTNH)  Police are investigating after a well-known businessman was allegedly savagely beaten by a group of teenagers in New Haven.

The street shows no sign of the attack, but folks who saw it can’t forget it.

“Bleeding everywhere,” said New Haven resident Rhea Brown, “he had blood all over him and it was like everyone just came to his aid.”

It was 49-year-old Brooks Macquarrie lying in the street, part of family-owned New Haven Power Sports.

He was test driving a motor scooter he had just fixed, at the corner of Goffe and Orchard, when five to six teens apparently pulled him off, beating him before stealing the bike.

His head and ribs were fractured, his nose was broken, and those who work beside him are shocked and angry.

“It’s a tragedy what happened to him and I wish someone would come forward, find out who did this,” said Frankie Whitaker, Owner of Auto Experts. “He’s a very well respected person.”

Coming down the road and taking the corner is the regular route for test driving the scooters, so there is some speculation the teens orchestrated the attack and were just waiting for him.

“I hope they catch the kids that did that,” said King Moye, Owner of Auto Experts. “Nobody deserves that, not on a day at work.”

It happened Friday afternoon right near the popular Goffe Street park, so police have witnesses, which is a good thing because Macquarrie’s injuries are so severe he doesn’t remember what happened.

Folks want the teens caught whether they know Macquarrie or not.

“For them kids to do that it was just wrong,” said Brown.

“Please come forward,” said Whitaker, “that didn’t have to happen, it didn’t.”

The business is open, but no workers are taking bikes for test rides.
